16 Ways Horses Can Make Humans Healthier
If you are debating whether or not to get a horse (or even keeping one), it’s sometimes a simple case of weighing up the ‘good’ versus the ‘bad. 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.

This is great! Back in my school and college days I volunteered at a program that offered equine therapy to youth with disabilities. It was so beneficial and powerful to see the improvements for those kids.
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
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!
I can relate to that. My dogs do the same for me. Thanks for taking the time to stop by, De. Peace
