However, there actually might be a lot more benefits to owning a horse than you might first think. For instance, did you know that horses can make humans healthier?

For a start, horses have been shown to help people cope and deal with anxiety issues as well as depression and an array of other potential mental health-related problems. Not only that, horses generally help make us feel better and put us in a better mood.

Take a look at the following infographic which explores a whole range of health benefits horses can have on people. 

From the 16 health benefits mentioned above, it is clear that owning a horse isn’t just a great hobby (it is), but it has been shown that horses can help maintain your all-round life healthier. Consider these beautiful creatures your own personal therapist, trainer, and emotional support.

    • Fred, how great for you that you were able to witness the effects of equine therapy for youth with disabilities. I worked with adults with disabilities for many years, and I always brought one of my German Shepherds to work. It’s really wonderful how animals are able to break through, isn’t it? Thanks for visiting Animal Bliss! Peace

  1. Very true. I love my horses. They keep me active even when I’d rather stay inside and be warm in the winter. Love ‘em lots!
