The horse Hannibal visits sick children
Louise E Chatteli and the hospital horse Hannibal from Söderälje are one of the finalists when the Fire Soul of the Year is to be selected. SVT accompanied a visit to the children at a nursing home in Huddinge.
For about three years, the hospital horse Hannibal and the rider Louise went around and greeted children who are long-term treated in hospitals in and around Stockholm.
- I felt I wanted to make a difference in someone else's life and give more of what I have, that's why I started going out with Hannibal as Sweden's first hospital horse, says Louise E Chatteli.Want to visit children all over the country
When they are not on a hospital visit, they are located at the Hummeldal horse farm just outside Södertälje. Now they are one of four finalists in the category of health when the Fire Soul of the Year is to be selected in March, an award that is awarded by a gaming company to people in the corporate world.
- Being nominated for this year's fire soul can mean that I can go around with the hospital horse throughout Sweden.
