Heart-warming moment terminal breast cancer patient gets surprise visit from her horse in hospice

This is the touching moment a terminal breast cancer patient got a surprise visit from her favourite horse after the animal was brought to her hospice. Catriona Craig has been a keen rider since she was a little girl and once made a living schooling horses in America.

The 62-year-old was pictured stroking her most-loved horse Ed after it was brought to St Richard's Hospice in Worcester by her husband David, 69. Hospice staff moved Mrs Craig's bed outside on to a patio overlooking the gardens for the heart-warming reunion with the 20-year-old former event horse.

Her husband and daughter Louise Russell-Pavier, 30, looked on as Ed nuzzled the mother-of-two, who has ridden him frequently, and took mints from her hand. Mrs Craig said: 'I've been around horses all my life. They are special and good to be around. 'Being with horses gives you good feelings and they take you to places in your mind and physically you don't normally go.

'We couldn't believe the care and quality of the hospice.'The kindness of the staff and everyone we have dealt with here has shown they are very special people doing a very hard job.'
