“There is something about the outside of a horse, that is good for the inside of a man.” – Winston Churchill
Horses are wonderful creatures. They are majestic, strong, and beautiful yet their qualities other than physical are often overlooked. We choose to work with horses because horses do not judge us based on our abilities. They do not look or seek for where we have weaknesses or faults. The horse sees us for who we are as individuals, and who we are capable of becoming. Just spending time with a horse often brings out the best in us; the best we do not always even see in ourselves.
That’s the job our therapy horses choose to take on. A horse has to want to do this job. It takes courage, kindness, patience, and so much more. They can be a best friend to learn and grow with, or a pillar of support on a rough day. These horses are here to do this job based on the fact they have the ability to bring out the best in every one of our participants. If you allow yourself to feel the magic; our horses have the ability to provide you with something you won’t find anywhere else.
