The bond between horses and humans seems to be ingrained in our psyche. There was a time these animals were ‘used’ in a myriad of ways as power-houses of energy. We used them to plough fields, pull carts and carry us onto the battlefield.
In recent years the role of the horse has changed for humans. Now we see these gentle giants in a different light. Rather than seeing them as utilitarian beasts, they are pointing us back to our own internal resilience and wellbeing.
The two Arab horses – Sherani and Dragonfly are perfect examples. They are being used therapeutically for children and adults who are caught up in worry, anxiety and fear. Belinda Seaward and her team are inspired by the way horses are so intuitive and ‘giving’.
We went out to meet these wonderful animals, to see how they are able to help people in many different ways. This short podcast will give you a flavour of the day.
