The therapy animals have given them a way to cope with pandemic-related stress from caring for people sick with COVID-19.
Dana Maiorana, a critical care nurse says she's volunteering with the organization.
"They've really helped me a lot during the pandemic. I go there," Maiorana said. "It's really therapeutic and stress-relieving for me. Even though I'm still being a care giver there. It's very different with the animals."
The families of healthcare workers were also invited to come see the horses, which turned the event into a good time for kids too.
