The Benefits of Being Around Horses for Children and Teens

There is a reason that equine therapy has become so popular in recent years. Horses can provide an array of benefits to those that they are around regularly. Being around horses can help children and teens alike to develop communication skills, increase their confidence, and learn to focus more effectively. Horses are uniquely sensitive to emotions and non-verbal cues, which makes them the perfect therapy animal. At Harness your Power, we believe in the healing power of horses and are dedicated to guiding you through the process of using that healing power. We offer youth programs to help children and teens take advantage of the mental and physical benefits that being around horses can provide.
