For The Love Of A Horse
A benefit of working with horses is the fact that humans and animals require no words to communicate.
This opens up a line of communication that may not be breached were the Veteran trying to reach a traditional therapist. One unique aspect about working with horses is the way that these animals intuitively mirror feelings that a Veteran may be experiencing – whether or not they are aware of it. Horses are very empathetic and they may reflect sadness, angst, or discomfort back towards the person they are working with.
This can help to promote self-awareness and open-mindedness, should the person make an active effort to interpret their horse’s behavior as a reflection of their own. This feedback loop can help an individual see deeper into the patterning of their own brain, leading them to understand their emotional reactions.
