The Perfect Gift for Every Horse Lover!
This collection of heartwarming true stories explores the amazing bond between horses and people. From backyard pets to USEF Horse of the Year winners, from grade horses to well-bred Warmbloods, the book takes a look at the meaning horses give to our lives. Each unique and uplifting story demonstrates what horsepeople have known for centuries: the important role that the horse has played in enhancing lives.
Every horse lover can identify with the school horse they first learned to post on, the horse they grew up with, or the horse that took them to victories they never dreamed possible.
Read about Iroquois who was rescued from a slaughter house and has taken his owner to the highest levels of the show jumping world. Or Soldier, who allowed his elderly owner to continue riding until the end of his life. And Crisco, the little pony who got stuck in a tree, or Nitro, the volatile Paint who found someone to love him and in so doing, gave a family a whole new life.
The book is not only for dyed-in-the-wool horse lovers. It also serves as a bridge for those who love someone who loves horses, to help foster a better understanding of what that passion is all about. And for those who are just plain animal lovers, it helps bring greater awareness of why horses are such special friends.
Author Ann Jamieson, USEF ‘r’ judge and horse show competitor, gathered her stories from interviews with horse owners throughout the country. They are all true stories, written to warm the soul and stir the imagination. “Best of all,” states Jamieson, “they are short so that even the busiest horseperson can find a few minutes in their day to read one or two stories at a time.” Click here to see a sample story.
