ABOUT RIDING HOME
RIDING HOME – The Power of Horses to Heal is the first and only book to scientifically and experientially explain why horses have the extraordinary ability to emotionally transform the lives of thousands of men, women and children whether they are horse lovers, or those suffering from deep psychological wounds.
RIDING HOME is also a book for anyone who wants to experience the joy, wonder, self-awareness and peace of mind that comes from creating an interspecies horse/human relationship. And finally it puts forth and clarifies the principles of today’s Natural Horsemanship or what was once referred to as “Horse Whispering.”
Everyone knows someone who needs help: a husband, a wife, a partner, a child, a friend, a troubled teenager, a war veteran with PTSD, someone with autism, an addiction, basically anyone in emotional pain or who has lost their way. RIDING HOME provides riveting examples of how “Equine Therapy” has become one of today’s most effective cutting-edge methods of healing.
Parents will discover how horses can profoundly enhance their child’s emotional development. Horses empower a child’s self-worth and sense of values, which help many to overcome some of society’s compulsive obsessions with technology, materialism, and celebrity.
Horses help us discover hidden parts of ourselves, whether we’re seven or seventy. They model relationships that demonstrate acceptance, kindness, honesty, tolerance, patience, justice, compassion, and forgiveness. Horses cause all of us to become better people, better parents, better partners, and better friends.
A horse can be your greatest teacher for, as you will see, horses have no egos, they never lie, they’re never wrong and they manifest unparalleled compassion. It is this amazing power of horses to heal and teach us about ourselves that is accessible to anyone and found in the pages of RIDING HOME – The Power of Horses to Heal.
