Abstract
Animals positive effects on human health and contribution to personal development through their mere nature have been known for a long time, but what are the key elements of the interaction between a girl and a her horse in a treatment-facility? To answer this question I have studied nine intervjues with staff and clients in a treatment-facility in Sweden.
The girl and her horse form an alliance were they learn about each other. Together they can overcome obstacles along the way and the horse becomes a source for attachement. The horse becomes a tool for communication and through the horse the girl will have knowledge of herself as well as seeing the needs of others.
