When he isn't writing about the things he loves most, you can find him in the great outdoors!

Whether or not you believe in holistic medicine, one thing is certain: there is just something about the relationship we humans have with animals that is absolutely incredible! And when that relationship is used to help a human feel better? You can actually see the results with your own two eyes.

This special horse retreat is known as Equinsity Retreats, and it’s meant to help people’s souls feel good again. While to some people it might seem silly, others swear by it. The horses on this 325-acre estate were bred to love humans, but for the most part they’re absolutely free and wild animals.

The horses are all incredibly comfortable to be around humans and just love snuggling up with each other on the ground. Although it might look a little weird to see horses so slow and pleasant, we can assure you that they’re healthy and perfectly normal in every sense of the word. They’ve just been brought up so happily that they act a bit different than any horse you’re used to seeing.

The video below is actually a teaser trailer for a thirty minute award winning movie titled “One With The Herd” that’s going to be shown in New York City as part of the ‘Equus Film Festival’ on November 19-22. People from all over the world come to this amazing place to let the horses heal their spirits. It’s been described that there’s an ancient sort of power you can feel when you’re with a horse, a deep understanding, and when you watch this video, you’ll want to go feel it, too!

While it’s certainly interesting to think about, we’re interested in what you think about the healing properties of horses. Let us know what you think about this in the comments below.
