Horse Notices Heartbroken Owner, Comforts Her In The Sweetest Way

When God created animals and humans, placing them together in the Garden of Eden, He did so with purpose, knowing we need each other.

Now one heartwarming video of a horse comforting his owner who was going through a painful divorce and feeling really emotional is confirming that.


In the video, Shiner, a 4-year-old Chestnut gelding, can be seen nudging his owner toward himself, seemingly attuned to her emotions.

Horses can read humans in uncannily accurate ways to make us aware of our sadness or nervousness, even before we register it.

His owner, Shania says, “I was in the process of a divorce and was moving out that day. I always set up my camera when I interact with my horses,” she said.

“I just happened to be hiding from my emotions and my horse Shiner, felt that. He felt my pain and just pulled me into his chest to let me cry it out and reassured me with his nudges.”

Watch: Horse Comforts Woman With Hug

Horses have the ability to form complex social relationships within a close-knit band of five to 10 of them like foals, fillies, stallions, and mares, and also with their humans.

Domestic horses can detect even the smallest changes in their owners, such as variations in tone of voice, touch, or body stiffness.

Hundreds of people who watched this video responded, saying they were deeply moved by the sensitivity and care the horse showed toward his owner.

Genesis 1:21 “So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.”
