“Learn how horses can heal people and the power of equine therapy. Riding Home is essential reading for horse lovers and everyone who works with people who need healing.”
— TEMPLE GRANDIN, author of "Animals in Translation" and "Animals Make us Human"
“Riding Home is the result of many years of Tim Hayes’ dedicated research on the healing power of horses…a different type of horsepower. The remarkable interaction between a horse and human provides the opportunity for solace, understanding and healing. Tim explains how horses are able to initiate the healing of our war veterans suffering from PTSD; a diagnosis that can be notoriously heartbreaking and difficult to treat. Through the horse, we can all connect physically, mentally, and spiritually.”
— LARRY MAHAN, 6 time World Champion All Around Cowboy, 2 time World Champion Bull Rider, Western Horseman Man of the Year, 2014
“Tim’s deep compassion, understanding and devotion to the well being of both humans and horses comes through in the quiet eloquence of this very well written book. His keen observations of the healing powers that horses can have on the human spirit are woven through with the kind of wisdom that makes this book more than a worthwhile read.”
— MARK RASHID, horse trainer, horsemanship clinician, and author of "Horses Never Lie" and "Considering the Horse"
“Riding Home will inspire and further encourage those with mental and emotional disabilities to find the dramatic beneficial effects as well as the elation and spirit derived from being with horses.”
— DR. ROBERT M. MILLER, D.V.M., equine behaviorist, author of "Understanding the Ancient Secrets of the Horse’s Mind," and co-author of "The Revolution In Horsemanship and What It Means To Mankind"
