Overview

This inspiring collection of stories tells of the hope and healing that come from contact between horses and people. Whether giving disabled riders a sense of freedom and mobility, healing wounds of childhood abuse, assisting with work, or simply riding trails with their human companions, horses bond with people in ways that change us for the better.
The stories, contributed by people from all over the country and from all walks of life, introduce: Cholla, the horse who paints pictures; a veterinarian who was reminded of the importance of compassion by a dying horse and a Native American chief; Star, a horse who saved a teenage girl from suicide; the late-blooming rider who embarrassed a horse and learned an important lesson about respecting the feelings of others — even if they have four legs; and many others. Every horse lover knows that horses, whether running through fields or performing intricate dressage drills, carry not only their riders but also messages of unconditional love and hope.

    New Age Influences

    Some of the stories in the collection 'such as Soul-Saver Horse and Benni Teaches Me to Trust in God' were truly beautiful. Other stories dealing with reincarnation and inner spiritual teachers left me saddened. There are many spirits in the world. To find out if the spirit is from the evil side or the good side, directly ask it: 'Is Jesus Christ, Son of God, the Lord and Savior of the universe?'. Only calling on the name of Jesus can make the dark and evil spirits flee. And remember, evil spirits can masquerade as beautiful beings of light.

    Inspiration on every page!

    Not only was it an honor having my essay, 'Soul-Saver Horse', included in this wonderful anthology, I also found inspiration on every page as I read through stories from others about how these divine creatures were so important to our spirits. Animal lovers of every age will find something in these essays from the heart. Among my favorites is the essay by Steve Schwertfeger 'Shetland Pony Shaggy's Healing Journey' about a rescued pony. It brought tears and feelings of hope at the same time. You'll want to read this book more than once, and I've definitely included it as a stocking stuffer for my entire family. Chrissy K.

    Angels are indeed among us all today

    A compilation of dozens of stories about equine love and devotion fill this book from cover to cover. Inside are the life experiences of many average and everyday people all sewn together wth a common thread. The one that has allowed them to experience (and be able to tell) of something from another plane of existence. Yes, I am one of those very same authors featured inside this edition.I must say though that after reading this book front to back in one sitting for the very first time, I am truly convinced, even more now than before, about the divine connection between these 'mere four leggers' and human beings. If you want to feel the emotions of the moment and share in the experience, please buy and read this book. I promise you that you will never regret that act.
