"To balance encroaching technology and biophilic needs, people must re-engage a human-nature relationship. A vehicle to nature connectedness is through the unique human-horse relationship. Interaction between horses and humans contributes to health and wellbeing through facilitating authentic relationships, mental and physical rehabilitation, and a regulation of emotion. This equestrian addition is a proposal that could be implemented in urban parks everywhere to increase attraction, be used as a teaching tool, and for individuals’ personal benefits."
