4. Horses are master therapists
There is a definite reason why horses are commonly used to help both children and adults with autism, anxiety, and lack of focus. Horses have an amazing ability to read people and help them learn how to live in the moment, increase motivation, improve self-esteem, and connect with others.
Horses have also played a role in helping men, women, and children overcome cancer. Horses have been proven to help ease cancer patients’ anxiety level, rediscover their enthusiasm — which in turn helps better the immune system.
