If I asked you to picture a horse, it is most likely you would also picture a rider…a jousting knight, a cowboy riding off into the sunset, a jockey circling the racetrack. Horses have long been our partners in work, travel, play, and creative pursuits. Now a new pilot program in the Bay Area draws upon this partnership to help those living with dementia.
According to a press release, the Connected Horse Project is “a a groundbreaking pilot study to explore how guided engagement with horses might help people living with dementia and their care partners.”
