Joe & Kathleen Camp have eight horses. Three mustangs straight out of the wild, a rescued American Saddlebred, two Arabians, a paint and a quarter horse. And at their farm there is no colic, no laminitis, no strangles, no insulin resistance, no ulcers, no founder, no navicular issues, no cribbing, pawing, kicking, weaving, pacing, or biting.
How did they accomplish all this? By eliminating stress. They banished it. Sent it packing. And you can too.
Joe never intended to write a book, never mind several. He and Kathleen were just trying to figure out how to keep and care for a small group of horses that had somehow landed quite unexpectedly in their front yard. They were two complete neophytes who, a few short months before, didn't have a horse or a clue. So they were asking a lot of questions, and getting a lot of answers that didn't seem to make any sense. After stumbling through mistake after mistake, digging through an enormous amount of research, and spending a great deal of time with their little herd they discovered that either they were stark raving nuts or there was something very wrong in this world of horses. That's where The Soul of a Horse began. Thankfully for us it turned out that they weren't nuts. At least not in the clinical sense. And it was too late for them to turn back.

The Mark of a Real Teacher
This is my favorite media review out of hundreds we’ve been blessed to receive: “Camp has become something of a master at telling us what can be learned from animals without making us realize we have been educated, and, that is, perhaps, the mark of a real teacher. The tightly written, simply designed, and powerfully drawn chapters often read like short stories that flow from the heart.” Jack L. Kennedy, The Joplin Independent
