What is a “Horse Wish”?

There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.  ~Winston Churchill

…and all people… young, old, and in between!

Spending time with horses and learning horseback riding has the power to improve an individual’s overall health and well being. Physically, riding horses improves muscle tone, balance, posture, coordination, motor development and cardiovascular ability. Emotionally and psychologically, the experience of working with such a large prey animal builds self-esteem and confidence, while developing feelings of self-reliance, control and personal achievement as they learn how to ride and guide a horse. Horses have been clinically documented to change human brainwave patterns, calming us, helping us to be more focused when we are with horses”*. Socially, riders benefit through the development of meaningful relationships with other participants, Horse Wish volunteers and instructors, and most importantly, with their new 1000 pound equine friend.
