see how our experience of stress compares to horses
Strength and Learning Through Horses help people to understand their own emotions and behaviours by working with horses and thinking about how human and horse behaviour and emotions are similar.
If a horse gets injured or sick we often have to confine them to their stables for weeks or months until they are healed (we call this box rest).
We've been thinking about how this confinement can cause stress in horses and how this is similar to the experience of people all over the world at the moment during COVID19 lockdown. We hope the thoughts are useful in helping you think about and manage stress.
