By watching this lovely video we couldn’t help but wonder the positive aspects that come from the interactions between children and horses. For instance, a lot of introvert children struggle to find other young friends hence it is relatively easier for them to make animal friends. Children nowadays spend all their free time with their personal computers watching different videos or playing video games and most of the parents struggle to get their children off their computers and tablets.
Equestrian parents have found the perfect solution to get them outside in the fresh air by making their horses the best companions for their children. “If your child likes animals and you’re concerned about that child’s problem solving, goal-setting, or decision-making skills, then definitely get him or her involved with horses,” says Ann Swinker, Ph.D., a professor in Animal Science at Penn State University.
Taking care of horses, walking or riding them can empower children. Of course, these activities are also great for children’s health cause it helps them develop balance and coordination. Another important positive aspect of the interaction between children and horses is the fact that it brings the whole family members together by creating beautiful memories that they will cherish forever.
Most of the parents who are non-equestrian think that is very dangerous to let their children around horses because they are unpredictable. Although there are exceptions this thought is partly wrong because there are a lot of studies who show that horses are very friendly and show affection toward kids.
