Discover the new Therapy with horses for Cancer Patients and how it helps

In recent years, there has been evidence suggesting that horses can provide therapy to cancer patients. Studies have been conducted by Cerulli et al, which prove that equine therapy is a technique that does show improvements, both to the body and the mind, in people who have cancer or who have completed their treatment. Even simple contact with a horse can bring benefits to people who are suffering from this terrible disease.

How Horses Help:  In this study, breast cancer patients who’d completed their treatment, spent 2 hours a week with the horses over a 16-week period. It was found that after spending this amount of time with the horses, the patients had increased their fitness levels and gained strength. The patients also found that their state of mind improved, too.

I ride horses and compete in Dressage, Showjumping and Eventing or Horse Trials. I also own and run an Equestrian property to the East of Melbourne, Australia. In my spare time I run a couple of websites including http://www.horseoz.com and http://www.carinyapark.com. To afford all this I work a full time job, so the definition of spare time is usually after dark. Sleep is over rated ;-) In my Blogs I try to tell what I am doing with the horses, give some updates with regards to the equestrian events I am attending and any relevant news about horse health and performance. I also give reviews on any new products I get my hands on related to my horsey activities If yuo want to buy or sell horses or anything equestrian related try http://www.horseoz.com/forsale
