If the concept of wellness is new for you, think of it as; the active state of being healthy.
Wellness is a positive approach to living life; an active process of becoming aware and making choices toward a healthier and happier more fulfilling life.
Wellness is generally used to mean a healthy balance of the mind, body and spirit that results in an overall feeling of well-being.
So what has this got to do with horses? Horses in many instances help humans in their quest to achieve wellness in their own lives, by supporting them on all levels. Therefore should not we, the humans, in turn offer the same gift to our horses?
By raising our awareness and subsequently making choices aimed at providing our horses with a happier and healthier existence we will encourage improved performance, an increase in vital energy, and a prolonged active existence.

- Content in their environment
