Scientists in Action: Horses Helping Humans

Program Description

Animals and humans have a special bond. Spending time with pets lifts our spirits, working animals help raise our food, keep us safe, and provide crucial services, and some even keep us healthy! At Colorado State University’s Temple Grandin Equine Center, horses play a central role in treating conditions of mind and body. Connect your students live with Equine-Assisted Therapy for a live look at this special relationship: explore how and why horses are uniquely suited to this kind of work, see Equine-Assisted Therapy in action, and learn about this fascinating career with animals.
