There is a natural relationship between children and animals which makes them good companions, who help each other. For each of the children with disabilities, having a relationship with animals helps them feel valuable. In addition, it is ideal since they usually have difficulties in making friends with other children. With animal therapies, an opportunity is created for a bond with another living being that allows the child to develop more and better.

One of the benefits of animals for people is that in children it promotes confidence and good self-esteem in the child since it motivates them to interact and become stronger. In turn, they allow the person with a disability to have a very affectionate experience, full of emotions and opportunities to strengthen muscles in case of riding a horse.

For people with disabilities, this is excellent therapy, and for children it is ideal since they take it as a game, making the activity more beneficial. As a kind of game is created, bonds of friendship are formed. This allows people who have a disability, such as autism, to gain knowledge of emotions and in turn how they can retransmit them.

Interacting with animals allows the person with a disability to make an improvement in their social skills, regardless of whether they see it as the opposite. If there is communication between the two. If the person has autism, owning a dog allows him to form a social foundation, appropriate to his cognitive aspect. Keep in mind that animals such as dogs and horses help in this process because they emanate emotions, such as sadness or joy, which individuals with this condition lack. You will probably never see friendship as good and unconditional as this girl and this dog!
