Animal therapy is a form of healing that has taken the mainstage over the past few years. But did you know that equine therapy can cause a huge improvement in your anxiety levels and confidence?
Here are 3 ways that horses can positively impact your life.
1. Judgement- free zone
Pressures from the office, friends, family and strangers and cause people to feel overwhelmed. Horses have no expectations and can provide you with a space that requires you to be in the moment. They don’t care what you wear, they just want to be loved.
2. Improve non-verbal ques
Horses rely on us to show them what to do. If we’re up tight and anxious, the horse will mirror our actions. If we’re standoffish, the horse will be standoffish. As we learn to control our actions, the horse will learn to control theirs too.
3. Put your mind at ease
Horses change from “at attention” to “at ease” very quickly. Humans, however, get upset about something and it can take them an hour or even a day, week, or month to get over it and become “at ease”. Horse can help you learn how to acknowledge a situation and then transition back into a state of ease.
