Equine Assisted Biblical Soul Care
Horses As Teachers
Horses are created by God, and as His creation reflect God, His attributes and His patterns. As a prey animal, horses are especially in tune with and aware of subtle human (predator) body-language and intentions and reflect these in their actions – always assessing what individuals motivations and intentions are. Living in a community (their herd) is critical for horses and reflects attributes of the body of Christ – they need each other.
Activities with the horses provide an opportunity for interactive, experiential insight into human vertical and horizontal relationships. In identifying the attributes of the horses (created beings) participants see the glory and nature of the Creator. Individuals are guided to correct Biblical principles and challenged to go deeper through specific questions initiated by the horse’s reactions and are then led to discover and internalize gospel truths.
