Healing by horses (equine therapy)
Being with horses can change people.
Horses can help us discover hidden parts of ourselves.
That animals are used to help healing human beings is nothing new. We know dolphins, horses and dogs as beastly therapists, but actually all animals do have healing power. You can be "healed" by any animal you feel attracted by. But the healing that could come from a horse is something very special. Horses are hypervigilant, they mirror us human beings and they have perfect social skills. They are accepting, tolerant, kind, respectful, honest, fair, nonjudmental, compassionate and forgiving. All this makes them to rather unique therapists.
