Equine assisted psychotherapy utilizes horses to generate metaphors that relate to people's lives and emotional issues, and to provide insights and solutions. In a recent personal experience with my horses the message of maintaining boundaries was clearly emphasized and an issue relating to the "identified patient" in a dysfunctional family dynamic was demonstrated as well.

Interesting! Horses are very sensitive, just as all animals are. :-)
The holistic vet I used to take my dog to when he was alive, has several horses at her place & we would always go pet them on the way out. (yes even my dog! I would take his little paw & have him stroke each one's nose!) And the ones in the back would get impatient for us to get to them, they'd make noise to get our attention! They are amazing creatures, thanks for the connection.


Horses are truly very sensitive and if you feel bad spending time with these animals can raise your mood. Whenever you are stressed you can take a lesson though students can alternatively buy research paper to reduce stress. Take care about your emotional stress!
