Everything old eventually becomes new again. That’s a truth we’ve seen play out time and time again in the fashion world…no sooner do we see a trend fade away into history than we see it come back around again! The same thing happens in the world of healing, where one of the oldest comforts in the world — spending time in the company of horses, drawing strength and solace from their presence — is being used in the therapeutic environment.
The Healing Power of Horses
According to this article from Bloomberg.com, Therapists use horses to treat depression, anxiety and attention-deficit and post-traumatic-stress disorders, among other maladies. Our equine friends are also assisting with marriage and parent counseling and corporate team-building.
As any horse lover knows, horses are incredibly intelligent. They’re very receptive to the emotions of people around them. How many times have you walked out to the pasture when you’re feeling a little down, just to watch the horses run, to have one of them walk up to you and nuzzle? It’s a comfort we’ve had since the earliest days. The companionship of a good horse can make the worst day more bearable.
Horse therapy is very beneficial to the people involved. It’s also good for the horses. Many of the horses used in equine assisted therapy are rescue horses or horses that have retired from the racetrack.
