The meaningful bonds that can exist between humans and animals have been shared for centuries – millennia even. A tremendous amount of love and mutual healing benefits have been experienced between people, horses and other animals we love.
Many who have worked closely with horses have attested to the unique and powerful magnetic nature they possess. Equine‑assisted therapy has helped many children, adults and even veterans through their healing processes throughout the world.
In collaboration with the HeartMath Institute, researchers Ellen Gehrke, Ph.D., and Ann Baldwin, Ph.D., set out to quantify the beneficial effects of these connections.
