When it comes to pets most people mostly identify with a dog, cat and even a goldfish. These are very common pets that many people have and are great choices. These companions are happy living in your home or backyard. Although they are a great option they are not the only choice. There are some people that have a pet turtle, parrot and even a teacup pig. One pet that takes quite a bit of space and work to care for and isn’t for everyone is a horse. They are an amazing animal not only for their look but the disposition they have as well. A horse is scary to some people but if you knew more about them you would likely change your mind. They come in many species that range in size, color and training. One characteristic about horses that is less talked about is what a benefit their companionship is to us.
Carve Me A Bear! Chainsaw Carving Explains Why Interacting With A Horse Can Improve Your Way Of Life!
Horses Help Us To Connect: A horse wants to have contact with us and we can learn about connecting by being around them. When you are around a horse you can pet them, brush their mane or ride them on a nice trail. You have to be able to communicate with the horse without words. The slightest movement as well as your own feeling can transfer to them. You need to be able to show the horse that you are there to love and care for them as well as guide them safely. The horse also has to be able to interpret these signals to know what you want. There really isn’t a better way to connect with a pet.
Horses Help Relieve Stress: If you are feeling stressed out you can come home and let your dog snuggle on your lap or pet the kitten but a horse has a more calming presence. The difference is that the horse is not in your home where you can pet and still worry about life. You have to travel to the farm or barn where the horse is being boarded. Then you need to focus on the animal because of the size and that means that you have to forget about your troubles while you are there. If you make a mistake when working with your horse you can end up injured. Another reason that time with a horse is calming is because you are out in nature. They are often boarded in an open area that can be calming on its own.
Horses Can Improve Our Health: Another way that a relationship with a horse can benefit us is by improving our health. When you are riding a horse you have to use great posture to ensure you are giving the horse the correct signals. You also have to use your core to keep yourself on the horse without falling off. This increases your health and can keep you active.
