What Is Soulful Equine?
Soulful Equine is a home for the real horse lover who cares about the health and well-being of the whole horse: emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually.

Why Does Soulful Equine Exist?
The short answer is that we love everything to do with horses, writing and education. We thought it would be better to write about and share knowledge through the educational materials we create verses providing answers to the same individual questions over and over again via email, long conversations and numerous resources. This gives us the opportunity to share in a more efficient and less intimidating manner.
When Did You Start Soulful Equine?
Soulful Equine emerged from years of passion, information-gathering and the realization that it is more efficient to have a centralized resource where we could send people who were wanting more information about natural boarding practices, equine nutrition and natural hoof care. The actual information-sharing and educational side of the business has been on-going since 2003. Soulful Equine is an online company that started in 2009.
Why Soulful Equine?
We’ve been on a journey of holistic approaches for ourselves since the early 1990’s, and we have acquired many years of knowledge and actual experience. We have tried numerous approaches over the years and believe that we can help people sift through the mountain of information and narrow the choices down by showing them what worked for us. It’s the goal of Soulful Equine to be a trusted place where people can come to find quality, cutting-edge information that is well documented and based on experience. In the process of providing this information, we want to have a fun and inviting atmosphere.
What We Believe
Horses didn’t choose to be domesticated. As their partners, it’s our responsibility to continually seek information that will allow them to flourish despite domestication. When we humans observe and learn from the horse, and then put what we’ve learned into practice, we invariably make the world a better place for horses. Once this discovery process begins, there is no turning back. Once we realize what our equine partners need to not only survive, but to THRIVE, it makes us hungry for more.
