Equine therapy has long been proven to treat people with a variety of disorders. Horses are said to mirror people’s emotions, so the simple act of being around certain creatures can put people at ease. Those suffering from anxiety disorders, stress, behavioral problems, and even autism can be treated with equine therapy. Because this type of therapy has been so successful, it’s now used to treat addiction patients as well. Those going through drug rehab in Sacramento and all over the world can benefit immensely simply from being around and engaged with horses.
There are psychological studies that have been conducted that show that being around horses can change human brainwave patterns, which is why it can be especially helpful for those going through addiction recovery.
