HEBRON, Ky. – Nervous fliers at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport can now get comfort from a miniature therapy horse.

A few horses were at CVG Friday to launch the program. They were dressed in Kentucky Derby attire in honor of Saturday's race. Horses will visit the airport twice a month.

The horses are provided by Seven Oaks Farm of Hamilton, Ohio.

According to its web site, Seven Oaks is a nonprofit corporation that provides "mobile therapeutic services to children and adults through equine assisted activities … We feel horses have the ability to connect with children and adults in a very special way that leads to tremendous benefits for both people and horses."
