The stories in this collection will move you to tears, make you laugh, remind you of your first brush with love (in the form of a horse), and most important, connect you with your soul; because that's what horses can do when you are willing to embrace what they so naturally and beautifully reveal to you. The authors come from a variety of horse backgrounds, but there is a common thread --- they all see the simple truth that these magnificent animals, through their presence and grace, can raise our consciousness, peel back the layers to uncover our true selves, and show us how to shine with brilliance.
You can read more about them and their amazing work with businesses, individuals and train-the-trainer programs and link to their websites via the Provider Directory on the NAV bar above.
