The Horse-Human Bond: Man’s (Other) Best Friend

You’re likely to leave the stable with a new skill and a new friend. Read on to learn more about the powerful bond between humans and horses.

Humans have been riding horses since the first bus broke down around 3,500 BC, but the full extent of the intraspecies connection is only beginning to come to light. Anecdotal stories of deep friendships between horses and humans abound, but studies suggest that horses really do form long-term bonds with humans with whom they’ve had positive encounters. In fact, horses can recognize their human friends months or even years after seeing them last.

Horses are naturally social animals, forming lifelong friendships with horses inside and outside their own families. This affable nature, combined with an impeccable sense of hearing, puts horses in a unique position to respond to human communication and even memorize human words. Trainers frequently talk in soothing tones to their horses, but much of the bonding occurs through nonverbal interaction: horses also get to know humans through daily grooming, feedings, and long, quiet rides into the sunset. Many longtime riders report feeling deeply attuned to their horses, both physically and emotionally.

Though not fully understood, the ineffable bond between humans and horses has spawned numerous equine-therapy programs. During these programs, people with mental illnesses or physical disabilities interact with horses through basic grooming and riding. Besides the unique physical benefits of riding—such as gaining core strength as they balance on a horse—these patients often experience an emotional release or a new sense of pride and accomplishment.

Customer Reviews

great experience, awesome lunch
Veronica S. · November 23, 2016
This was an absolutely fantastic experience! The staff is truly phenomenal & so patient as I had never, ever even been on a horse before.... Haley, Ann & Missy were all great in making me feel comfortable, and safe. The food was bountiful and delicious. The trail ride was breathtakingly beautiful. And the company of friends made it totally priceless! If you have the opportunity, please go, you won't be disappointed!

Due to their technical issues, we had a bit of trouble communicating, but we finally got it all coordinated. Once the day came, we all loved it! I missed the feeling of owning a horse & the rest of my group had never experienced it before. They all enjoyed the brushing, cleaning, saddling & 'getting to know your horse' time before the ride ever started. The staff was great, trails fun, lunch was excellent, horses all healthy & ready to go for a ride! Very family friendly feeling. We will do it again.
