The emotional complexity of horses is an amazing & profound thing.
Below is a photo of Zindita, a mare that was due to give birth. Unfortunately, her baby was upside-down inside the womb, and when the birth took place, things went terribly wrong.
Zindita survived, but the baby did not.
Clearly distraught, Zindita struggled to recover after the event.
Nearby, veterinarians had gone through a similar experience, a foal’s mother had died whilst giving birth. They saw an opportunity and introduced the pair to each other.
Zindita became immediately protective of the foal, as you can see in the photo below.
But would they bond enough to stay together?
The photo above was taken hours after their meeting.
The photo below shows them weeks later. The pair got along excellently. Zindita looks after the foal as if it were her own and both mother and child are happy and healthy.

7 Amazing Effects A Horse Has On A Child’s Brain
If you’ve ever heard of equine-assisted learning, you’re aware of the benefits of kids spending time with horses. It’s more than just an idea; studies repeatedly find that spending time with horses has a huge positive impact on children’s development.
These studies began when children with learning disabilities were found to be highly responsive to working with horses. Since then, the practise has spread to others fields, with benefits being found for students, adults and people suffering from PTSD.
The reason is not entirely understood, but children seem to show a unique receptivity to working with horses.
We’ve compiled a list of the main benefits that people experience when doing work with horses. All of the effects are supported by experimental evidence.
Increases in Self esteem.
Greater attention spans.
Higher levels of trust.
Lower cortisol levels.
(Cortisol is the hormone in the brain linked to stress.)
Higher levels of trust.
Decreases in anger.
The amazing effect of horses has been used to make education more effective, with equine-assisted learning programs. It’s even been introduced to the world of psychology, with some practitioners looking into equine-assisted psychotherapy!
These studies confirm what most horse people knew intuitively; there’s something about horses that changes humans for the better.
