These yogis and their horses prove how beautiful the bond between an equine and a human can be.

Pet yoga isn't just for dogs and cats. People are honing their balancing acts around the farm, too.

From goat yoga to horse yoga, this therapeutic practice showcases the level of trust that a human can form with an animal--especially one that's five times their size.

Check out this collection of horse yoga enthusiasts captivating us with their poses and the bond they have with their equines.

Patience Is a Virtue

Stable Stability

You know those days where you just "can't adult," when you don't feel like going to work, or yoga, or the gym? Those are the days I find I did my best, if I can convince myself to go. I woke up not wanting to do anything yesterday, but I did the first thing on my list and the rest fell into place. I was so productive. (Probably helps that my first thing was #yoga ?) SO all I am really saying is do it! While your procrastinating on Instagram take a look at these pretty leggings from @altaregoapparel and use code MrsMilholland for 15% off your purchase. #altaregosister #womenstyle #lompoc #losalamos #barefootvaulters #yogaleggings #yogakills #yogaistheartofliving #yogaeverydamnday #horseyoga #equestriansofinstagram #walterthevaultinghorse #iwillwhatiwant

Universal Blessings

•Blessed Change• A major life change brings you great blessings. The changes in your life are actually helping you leave behind that which no longer serves you. Your spiritual purpose with old situations is now complete. Affirm frequently: "I now welcome divinely inspired change, and I stay centered in the eye of the hurricane as change occurs around and within me. All change if for my highest good. I know that love is stable and always provides for me and my loved ones- no matter what our outer situations appear to be." The universe has your back! ?✨??????☄? #omshreemmalakshmiyeinamaha #gilitrawanganbeach #gilitrawangan #gilitrawanganisland #bali #indonesia #turquoise #watercolor #travel #travelgram #traveling #nomad #gypsy #healingyoga #saltwater #horses #horseyoga #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #camelpose #ocean #paradise #theisland #mermaid #bepositive #goddess #perspective #wepositive #yogateacher @soyoudonthaveto #travelawesome

Hydro and Horses

This beautiful practice isn't restricted to yogis. Horse yoga is being used as a form of equine therapy for mentally and physically impaired individuals, too.

Balancing on a horse uses great focus and muscle control. Additionally, forming a bond with the animal helps with social skills.

If you're anything like us, these photos will have you searching for the nearest opportunity for horse yoga. Thankfully, opportunities abound across the globe--even if you don't have your own horse!
