Overview

Hope . . . From the Heart of Horses explores and celebrates the relationship and bond possible between horses and humans. Each chapter offers a life lesson about trusting one’s instincts, honestly addressing emotions, achieving clarity in communications, and re-leasing negative thoughts. Because survival depends on being highly tuned to the thoughts and feelings of others, horses sense human intentions rather than what a person offers in facial expressions, which creates a remarkable effect on the relationship between these two distinctly different species. Among the moving stories the author relates are a horse named Hope who teaches the difference be-tween hope and faith; an abused horse’s background bringing up old memories and helping the author to move on; a young Olympic equestrienne hopeful who dis-covers and reaffirms her self-esteem; and a corporate training session in which one participant achieves great success merely by being honest about her fears. As you see how these people grow deeper into them-selves as they learn the horse’s way, you, too, will be inspired to explore and apply the deep and ever-lasting connection and communication between horses and humans.

    I Also Recommend:

    A personal journey that shares an passionate message about a deeper level of the special relationship between horses and humans

    Kathy is able to share both the difficult and joyful details of her personal journey with horses in a way that teaches us about the special gifts that horses can bring to us. Her story is heartfelt and the wisdom she has gained, she graciously shares with us all. Each time I pick up the book, different messages seem to come forward...for those who have marveled at horses only from afar and for those who, like me, are fortunate enough to have lived a lifetime with them, this book allows us to appreciate the little known healing power of these wonderful animals.

    If you love horses, this book is most inspiring and thought-provoking.

    Kathy's writing is so descriptive that many scenes in the book came alive for me, allowing me to see the scenes being described. I experienced moments of laughing out loud, eyes welling up at both the beauty and fear being described, all the while wondering how the tale would end. I think this is a book full of heart, wisdom, humility and, yes, hope. If you love horses and want to learn more about horses and how we mere humans can relate to them, read this book. It's exceptional.

    Hope restored, embraced

    Kathy's book on Hope is just that. A deeply moving portrayal of her own walk with horses from a devastating accident to a teacher-communicator who facilitates others on their journeys' away from fear/anger/passivity to liberty/purpose/success and hope. Her style is very engaging, personal and real. You are drawn into each place she takes you with her flowing honesty and authentic heart. Reading this book alone invites you to that place of freedom she is so gifted at teaching you.

    A magical journey

    This book touched deeply my heart and I believe that the horses' wisdom invites us to a great journey about our personnal developement. Kathy shares her own experience and the stories of horses and clients in an open and authentic way. As soon as I started reading, I was captured by the richness of the experiences and the power of horses in the healing process. I really invite you to discover this magic book and to go for a coaching with a horse as well.
