Horses are similar to humans in their social and responsive behaviour. Being with the horses in nature supports people build self-awareness and discuss feelings, patterns and behaviours. This can provide social, emotional, cognitive and behavioural benefits such as self-regulation of emotions, reduced anxiety and increased wellbeing. Horses live in a state embodied awareness and provide authentic, unconditional contact.
