Why Do Horses Help?

•According to Dr. Laurie Sullivan-Sakeada, a Utah based Clinical Psychologist and leading practitioner of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, horses are prey animals, and, like those who have been to war, rely on their heightened senses for survival.

•They react to and mirror the emotions of visitors directly, without words.

•Horses respond negatively to negative emotions.  They respond positively to positive emotions, and they have no ulterior motives.

“They are just there,” says Sakeada, “providing non-verbal feedback.”
