Why mindfulness with horses? “Put simply, horses read and react to the conscious and unconscious signals that we send. For this reason, interaction with horses may allow us to develop awareness of our unconscious communication with the outside world – unconscious messages that we constantly send, which shape our environment’s response to us.”
