Every horse person knows that our equine friends have the ability to make us feel better, no matter the cause of our mental anguish. As teenagers we shed tears into our horses’ manes, and as adults we ponder problems on long, quiet rides or while wielding a brush to bring out the shine on our BFF’s coat.
