Equine Therapy: A Way To Self-Empowerment And Positive Feelings

According to the latest research horses recognize different human faces. They also can recognize the emotions a human is experiencing from his facial expressions and the tone of his voice. This is something all horse enthusiasts know, but now it is scientifically proven.[1]

Horses are very good at recognizing human emotions and acting accordingly. A horse senses your emotions and answers to them. Therapy horses are particularly good at this. These are horses with even higher than normal capability to read humans and help them. With horse therapy different kinds of strong negative emotions, like fear or stress, can be turned into positive ones in two ways:

  • Horse answers immediately to human emotions. If you are afraid, the horse becomes vary or even frightened. If you are happy, he answers you by being happy. This teaches the person taking the equine therapy to both understand his own emotions and to understand how he affects the ones around him.
  • Because of his heightened sensitivity a good therapy horse has deeper understanding of the underlying cause behind a negative feeling. He can recognize that the cause of anxiety is emotional stress or physical pain or that the cause of fear is the human´s sensitivity (HSP). He doesn´t get easily scared of strong emotions but tries to calm the person down and create a safe and positive environment.

Horse therapy also helps the human with self-empowerment:

  • Horse is a horse after all, and she may try to push boundaries when she recognizes an insecurity in a human. A good therapy horse does this only when she senses that it is safe to do so with this human. By pushing her boundaries, the horse teaches the human how to take her space and stand her ground.
