Celebrating 8th Anniversary of Beloved School Horses!
The month of September marks the 8th Anniversary of my Beloved School Horses.
After closing our Unicorn Stable in 2000, I decided to share my fondest memories of the unsung heroes of the horse world - the lesson horse. From little Petey, my son's first pony, to big Tetris, an ex-dressage horse, these stories have been enjoyed by horse lovers of all ages. I've read some to kids as young as five because several anecdotes describe the special bonds between children and a horses. Older riders enjoy the trip down memory lane.
My Morgan Horse, Windfield Farewell, is featured on the cover and first chapter. He calms a nervous Girl Scout as she attempts to overcome her fear in order to earn her Horsemanship badge.
Dennis, a grade gelding who loves to halt, rewards an autistic 6 year old with a prompt response when asked to whoa. The boy, who had never smiled in his life, grins like a crescent moon causing the walkers to be overjoyed to tears.
And a double amputee Viet Nam veteran proves to himself that he is still a cowboy when on Knipper.
These are just a few of the horses featured. When marketing my book, other horse lovers wanted to tell me about their beloved horse. And so a series was born. The 5th will feature breeds from around the world and be released at the end of this year.
