How Horses Can Help Heal

Health professionals say horses can reflect our emotions to bring relief from addiction and stress.

"The horse is the perfect mirror, they are very emotional beings; we're only starting to realize how intelligent they are," said therapy counsellor Gabrielle Gardner, of Shine For Life (theguardian.com)."

We believe that horses’ calm presence provides a comfort difficult to find anywhere else. It's hard to believe that a being so strong and graceful would choose to spend a moment with us is an honor which requires recognition and gratitude.

"Now the psychological benefits of working with horses are being recognized by growing numbers of therapists who work with autistic children, young people with behavioral problems, adults with depression or celebrities with addictions (theguardian.com)." Read more about how horses are proving to be excellent therapists by clicking on the article link here.

If you are interested in some equine peace and healing, or just looking for a relaxing moment to think and reflect away from busy Washington DC and it's surrounding areas, come visit us at Solaris Stable and Yoga. Whether you do one of our wine country rides, riding lessons or participate in an equine facilitated learning, Solaris Stable & Yoga Studio can provide you with that quiet space in nature you are looking for.
