Praise for The Horses We Love, The Lessons We Learn

"Tena's real-life stories are modern-day parables for the lessons horses have to teach us: Learn from your mistakes, trust your instincts and, above all, have fun. Some stories made me laugh out loud as I recalled being in similar predicaments. Others touched an emotional chord and made me cry. I came away from them longing to be in the nurturing presence of horses, soaking up all they have to offer--and always becoming a better person for it."
--Stacey Nedrow-Wigmore, Managing Editor, Practical Horseman

"This book captures the reader's attention and prompts a smile as each chapter concludes. Horsemen and non-horsemen alike will find the pages easy to read, inspiring, and down-to-earth as we are reminded to treasure all of life's experiences and practical lessons."
--Coagi Long, Program Director, Equine Affaire

A tribute to horses and a treasure for horse-lovers

This unique book shares life lessons lovingly learned in the company of horses--universal lessons about facing adversity, finding your niche in life, second chances, and more. Humorous and touching, uplifting and poignant, the twenty-two stories inspire and delight.

It was incredible. I got this book during a very difficult time in my life. I had to put down one of my horses. It touched me so deeply I couldn't put it down. I finished it and within a week had picked it back up and started through it again. Now I know I am not crazy. Someone else has the same connection and takes much more from their relationship with their horse than just the ability to ride. BRAVO!!!
