Donkey Therapy Italy  

Research has shown that spending time with donkeys has enormous therapeutic benefits. For children with disabilities, riding therapy donkeys provides a unique opportunity to improve their strength and coordination as well as boosting their confidence and self-esteem.

Donkeys are naturally calm animals. Their slow and steady presence gives a feeling of security and comfort to the poorly, the elderly and those feeling vulnerable or suffering from emotional difficulties.

Touching, grooming and cuddling donkeys is a great social facilitator, allowing people to relax and feel a sense of nurturing and connection.
