Well Happy looked nice, but from his face I think he probably wanted to be back in the paddock with some Lucerne. Which is what happened when we took the ribbons off. We love Happy 😃 ... See MoreSee Less

So, why work with horses?⁣

Horses are just one of the animals incorporated in animal assisted therapy.⁣

They are large powerful animals, and in the wild they live in herds with defined roles. ⁣

They function together because cooperating means their survival. ⁣

Herd leaders create this cooperation and harmony by establishing boundaries based on respect, trust and discipline.⁣

Every horse has its own personality which means that one approach that works with one horse may not work with another. 🐴⁣

This creates an opportunity for clients to modify their behaviour and the psychologist to observe how the client reacts to the differing personalities of the horses. ⁣
