Horses and Art

Updated: Jul 9





Horses and artistic expression can become powerful means to help heal and rehabilitate.


Horses invite us to live in the now and help humans build self confidence, access inner resources reaching a state of joy and calm with their generous, steadfast and kind presence. Artistic expression provides a channel to let go of blockages, tapping into intuition and letting the mind wander, explore and relax in a space of emotional and physical release.


An amazing and valuable example of the association of the two is provided by a project implemented at the Gemelli Polyclinic in Rome where young cancer patients are offered the opportunity to spend time with poneys and to playfully paint during their stay at the hospital and later during their recovery phase.

The name of the project is POP: poneys and oncology paediatrics, supported by the artistic lab : ANIMA. It was launched in 2022 in collaboration between the Italian Equestrian Federation and Rome Gemelli Polyclinic.


At With My Horses we also aim at providing a moment and space of learning, relaxation and connection to self and others, by exploring artistic expressions and by relating with our kind and sociable horses, immersed in a natural setting where there are no constraints, expectations or judgements either for the humans or the horses. Our horses are always free to engage (or not) with our clients thus making the experience even more powerful and meaningful in terms of insights and immediate, hands-on learning, enabling clients to understand their communication and engagement patterns and adapt them when necessary, to obtain better results.


For any questions, please contact us and we will be delighted to tell you more: withmyhorses@gmail.com or (+32)0473353430.
