A horse is a noble animal

All animals have legs, but with horses we say they have legs! The horse is a noble animal.

People have been riding horses for centuries, they were used by humans as a draft horse for the land, as a means of transport, to pull a carriage or to make war.

Today horses are mainly used in equestrian sports. Horse owners often have a close bond with their horse.

They were and have always been extremely important to humans and that is why horses are called noble.

Why are horses so loved?

Horses give us a physical and sensory sensation. They have velvety soft skin and warm muscles, they have a pleasant scent and they bring us peace.

Petting and riding a horse feels good. Why do horses have such an impact on humans?

Well, it turns out that every heart, both human and animal, emits a magnetic field.

The larger the heart, the greater this magnetic field and a horse has a very large heart. In his presence, we feel filled with empathy, which in turn connects the horse with us.

When we ride a horse, we swing with its rhythm. Our hips move and that makes our body produce oxytocin.

This substance, a happiness hormone, makes us happy and calms the nerves. How wonderful!

Playing with horses reduces stress in children

Research has shown that letting children ride or interact with horses results in much less stress.

Horses are herd and prey animals and this combination makes them very sensitive to non-verbal signals.

It therefore takes them little time to build a relationship of trust with vulnerable or insecure children. Horses don't judge, horses only feel.

In any case, animals have a beneficial effect on children: they are all unbiased and can comfort them well. But a horse has that little bit extra!

Types of horses

There are many different horse breeds. Big horses, but also smaller ones.

The largest and strongest horses used to be used to help people with heavy work, the draft horses.

Some are even so strong that they can pull boats (so also fun to play with this boat toy!). Other horse breeds are more suitable for just riding.

Small children often ride ponies or Shetland ponies. Haflingers are also popular, because they often have a sweet character.

Halflingers come from the Austrian village of Halfling and were created after a cross between a native mare and an Arabian thoroughbred in 1874.

Conclusion

After reading this article it may have become easier to understand how attractive horses are to children and why our kids love them so much.

Children are therefore often crazy about everything that has to do with horses;

Not only on horseback, but also on horse cuddly toys, Barbie Dolls with horse, horse books and also unicorns.

They love to cuddle horses or get lost in a horse story. With toy horses they can make their own story and experience wonderful adventures.

They can comb the mane and groom the coat, or clean out the stables, just like a real horse.

The toy horses that we have listed for you will help you choose the right gift for your little one or perhaps for your slightly older child.

Each item has a clear description. Enjoy reading!
