Animals and nature, their interdependency are a point of interest for children as of very young age. Children learn and build their own attitudes towards the world that encompasses them through their own personal experiences. Meeting horses as noble and intelligent animals and spending time with them, compiles a quality basis for developing social responsibility, communication, tolerance and respect while acquiring self-confidence. Spending time with horses, learning about their growing up, habits and life in a community in general has a very positive and soothing impact on children that creates mutual trust. Therefore, horses become their best friends despite their dominance in terms of the size in comparison to children.
