Equine therapy is the use of horses in a therapeutic setting. Horses and equine therapists can help teach patients how to refocus their attention to responsibilities, trust and accountability. Equine therapy helps patients develop new, healthier coping mechanisms and self- regulation techniques. Furthermore, horses have a unique sensitivity to people’s feelings and can act as an emotional mirror, thus reflecting a person’s emotions and experience.
