Horses play an important role in addiction treatment due to their keen sensitivity to changes in a person's emotional and mental state. The therapist studies a horse's behavioral reactions to the client's moods and gleans information from the human-horse interactions. A horse's behavior thus helps the client gain self awareness and establishes trust, because most patients perceive horses as non-judgmental and inviting. The positive and therapeutic alliance between the horse and the human being improves the outcome of treatment goals.
