Meet the Author

If there's anything special about me at all, it is that I am profoundly simple. It wasn't always that way. Some of the more interesting lessons learned about simplicity came from the stallions I trained over many years. The only way to get a 1500 pound mass of hairy testosterone to offer obedience and loyalty is to earn it. You can't fool God and you can't fool a horse. They can spot "fake" from a thousand yards away.

No blessing is complete until it is shared with others. I share experiences drawn from time served as an introverted preteen, an extroverted teen, a figure skater, a college drop-out living in an unfinished basement, a non-traditional college graduate, two-time grad school drop-out, successful business consultant and professional speaker, a battered wife, a cherished wife of over thirty years, an anti-politician in politics, a community leader, a greener-than-green horse owner, a National and World Champion equine professional, and as a secure and blessed child of God.

Each one of us has a unique story to tell and a purpose. If you're reading this I can assure you that God has a plan for your life - and He has a sense of humor.

It was gratifying to discover that messages I delivered as a motivational speaker were correct. Today I know where those principles are found in the God's Word. What is true is always true - in every era, circumstance, and location.

Our small herd of six horses graciously allow my husband and me to share their barn as our home.

The premise that it could be possible for my horse to delight to do my will just as it is possible for me to delight in doing God's will was incentive enough to pack my saddle bag and set forth on a journey with Discipleship With Horses as my trail guide.  Christian author Lynn Baber shares ways to reflect on and transform your relationship with Christ -- and with your horse – by presenting parallels between Discipleship and Christian Horse Training: offering wholehearted commitment, developing confidence and faith in one's Master, distinguishing between being unable and unwilling, the power of focus, keeping promises, obedience as gift (and the fruit of relationship), overcoming obstacles, and more.  In a friendly, conversational style, the author offers lively stories and analogies that testify to the truth that only faith, promises kept, and commitment drive out fear. Once driven, what remains are transformative relationships -- you with Christ, you with your horse, and your horse with YOU, his master who has proven faithful in things big and small. As Christ is to me, I can and must be to my horse. After reading this book and helpful ways to get started, I’m inspired and excited to give it my all. It took me a while to read this book, but only because it offered so many rich opportunities to stop and ponder. Take the time that it takes. As Lynn Baber promises, the journey to living in right relationships is gift and joy in itself.  Jesus instructed his Apostles not to take a walking stick, a money bag, or a second tunic on their journeys. But if you're taking the road less travelled known as Christian Horsemanship, do take this book. Read it. Savor it. Live it and be transformed.
