Soul to Soles Services

Soul to Soles Connection offers ground-based mental health treatment for FREE at our private 40-acre farm in Mooresville, NC.

While riding and horsemanship is beneficial, it can obscure the primary mechanism which makes Equine Assisted Psychotherapy so effective – the horse’s natural, unfiltered, and unbiased response to the client’s psychological material (behavior, thoughts, feelings, attitudes). There is a freedom to move, connect and be present.

According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, “Equine Therapy has shown to be effective in treating patients, including combat veterans, with PTSD, depression, anxiety, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, conduct disorders and other chronic mental illnesses.”
