Health Benefits

There are many benefits from participation in equine-related activities. Time spent with horses increases:

  • Adaptability
  • Distress tolerance
  • Emotional awareness
  • Independence
  • Impulse control
  • Self-esteem
  • Social awareness
  • Social relationships

However, looking after horses also requires dedication and work. They must be fed, watered, exercised, and groomed—activities that can all be therapeutic. These routines and caring for and nurturing horses can also help build empathy.
