MOORESVILLE, N.C.-- Willow Equine therapy in Mooresville uses horses as therapy to treat veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder, people with mental or physical disabilities, and people who need an outlet for stress.

The clients walk with the horses or observe them.

“You can’t fool the horses and you can’t try to say the right things because in this type of setting there’s no way to get around what is truly inside,” Katie Stankiewisz, Willow Equine Founder and Owner, said 

Once the session is complete, the clients and therapists talk about what they saw and how the person working with the horses felt during the session to make sure they got the most out of their experience.
