Animal-assisted therapy has shown evidence-based efficacy in all types of patients including war veterans with PTSD, people suffering from depression or anxiety, as well as those with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, conduct disorders, dissociative disorders, and other chronic mental illnesses.
Horses are prey animals, they 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, providing non-verbal feedback. The horses are therapeutic and interactive tools that speed up the therapy process substantially.
