Did you know that horses can heal you?

It's hard to believe that this strong and graceful animal can be not only your friend or transport, but it can also be your doctor. Let's see what kind of difficulties pretty horses relieve!

Did you know that horseback riding is accepted to be an official method of treatment? It is called "Hippotherapy". This extraordinary method can heal lots of different diseases. Hippocrates himself claimed that patients riding a horse are recovering faster than the others. A french philosopher Denis Diderot dedicated a large essay to the hippotherapy as if it was the most healthful kind of sport.

The hippotherapy fits for all people. Besides healing, horses bring joy and happiness into our routine everyday life!

Information I didn't know about before. I use to ride a horse and I remember feeling worn out (but good worn out) after getting off. I never thought about the good this was doing my body.

I never believed in the “Therapy Animal” B.S. until I ended up in a nursing home waiting to die from cancer. One day a Therapy Animal was brought into my room, I would have never believed the effect one dog would have on me. That dog turned everything around and I went from a terminal cancer patient to fully recover in just a matter of a few months.

Jim Adams, totally agree. I wish every single home, be it nursing home or rehab, would have this kind of service within it. There would be a lot more happier people, and less dying ....

I used to ride every day when I had Horses. It always had a calming effect on me after a stressful day,and they enjoyed it as well.

I've heard that Japanese won't allow horses in their house because they won't take their shoes off. I have not been able to verify this.

"There is nothing so good for the inside of man as the outside of a horse" I don't recall the author. I have been in love with horses from the age of 3, started riding at 4 and am still in the saddle at 63.

I injured my SI joint - not horse related injury. My best relief when it would flare up was to lope on my gelding in easy rhythmic circles in a sand ring. Amazing how much relief it gave me.

Quite interesting, but not everyone is lucky enough to own a farm with horses. I love these animals but they are out of my reach.

Horses are absolutely awesome! Lovable, majestic and beautiful. Jesus will ride a white horse. Majestic, beautiful and chosen by their Creator. Thanks for the information. Very interesting indeed.

Tina Marie Haddad Rhodes, Very well put. Love the bit about the cell phone. So true.

I rather be riding a horse than be with people, the horses are more intelligent, more caring, and a horse doesn’t judge you. And best of all they don’t have a cell phone attached to their ear. 😊
