Honey and Mary Rose Graduate

Mary Rose Gullet, MSW, RCSWI, founded Honey's Mini Therapy Adventures in 2018. What began as volunteer work and her immense love for horses quickly revealed an incredible need for this unique service in the community, especially in healthcare settings related to mental health. Our journey started on our family farm with a small horse named Honey, gifted to our daughter for her 2nd birthday.

During the pandemic, Mary Rose decided to return to graduate school to pursue becoming a licensed clinical social worker. She has since graduated with honors from Saint Leo University with a Master of Social Work. Her goal is to engage in more in-depth work as a mental health professional with therapy horses, providing equine-facilitated psychotherapy sessions to help people with PTSD, anxiety,depression, eating disorders, autism, veterans, and dementia.

Since 2018, our organization has grown to over 15 horses, a team of dedicated volunteers, three Honey vans, and a hardworking board of directors. We have provided over 1,300 portable equine therapy visits, including weekly visits to hospitals across Central Florida. Honey's currently visits over 25 hospital campuses, including Tampa General, AdventHealth, UF Health, and Lakeland Regional, with therapy horses visiting inpatient psychiatric and behavioral health units within these hospitals each month.

Mary Rose currently works at Lakeland Regional Hospital as a clinical social worker at the Harrell Family Center for Behavioral Wellness. Equine therapy in hospitals and healthcare facilities involves interactions between humans and miniature therapy horses, complementing other medical and therapeutic treatments. Therapy horses provide an engaging experience where traditional clients or patients may resist standard types of therapy. Our mission is to ensure this therapeutic intervention becomes more accessible. We bring the power of equine therapy to where it is needed most, benefiting individuals regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic class. Please consider supporting our mission to continue this impactful work for years to come.



Our Board of Directors is thoughtfully curated over the years with volunteers whose heart aligns with our mission.
