How to Tame Anger with Equine Therapy? 

More often than not, controlling rage can be harder than you thought and can get out of your hands. While some are expressive, others may be passive. Passive aggression is worse than direct aggression. An individual may feel passive aggression is a safer or more polite way to get the things done the way they want. However, it is only going to have more negative impact than do you any good. 

It is a known fact that you cannot think straight when you’re angry. But people often fail to accept a flaw, be it you, your partner, your growing teenage kid, parents, or anyone close to you. People having anger issues need to be calmed for their own good.
