Horses Healing People
It’s All About FEEL
What is FEEL?
Horses are comfortable with who you really are they teach you to be balanced by aligning mind, body and spirit, and they can see through the masks people wear, what society has dictated or influenced. Horses respond to the genuine person inside. Because, horses have the amazing ability to sense people’s true feelings, they help people recognize what attitude is no longer needed, old thought process and repetitive patterns can be recognized and released.
Through these facilitated activities participants have the opportunity to connect with a horse in a natural peaceful environment. Using mindfulness techniques and engaging with a horse from the ground, people learn more effectively finding their own answers from within. Horses connect with people’s heart energy opening up levels of healing that people have never felt before, “learning to recognize and express their true feelings” Spending time with horses in nature with other like minded people, gaining self knowledge and learning new tools for wellness, brings about a sense of empowerment and allows for change.
Ways Horses Help
- Using mindfulness techniques during simple activities, helps improve focus and awareness.
- Working with horses physically, allows you to train your body improving motor skills coordination, and speech.
- Horse’s have a heart rate three times slower than humans, just being in the presence of a horse, and using a rhythmic brushing motion helps reduce stress levels and anxiety.
Equine assisted therapy is becoming increasingly popular and beneficial to the mental and physical well being of humans, it also helps create a sense of community where people can come and connect to nature. Horses can help people with their everyday life skills as well as helping those in need of rehabilitation.
Spending time at Hathaway Farm and allowing yourself the opportunity to have a heartfelt interaction with another living being, looking into the big eyes of a horse and realizing that they are mirroring back what you are feeling inside, can be a life altering opportunity. It’s like looking into your own soul.
