This deeply felt work features reflections on the spiritual impact of horses, exercises you can try out on your own, and quotes from such notable horse enthusiasts and professionals as jockey Julie Krone, the first woman inducted into Thoroughbred Racing's Hall of Fame; Michael McMeel, who founded and directs a horse-oriented program for at-risk youth; and jockey Gary Stevens, who played George Woolf in the movie Seabiscuit.
Gleaming with affection and reverence, The Tao of Horses is the perfect gift for horse riders and aficionados of all ages.

Ms. McCall captures the essence of what it means to be spiritually connected with horses. For those who make this pursuit their life's work and for those who want to dabble in it with awareness, this book solidifies what everyone in the market is trying to put into words. Elizabeth has chosen to celebrate the outward and inward dialogues we have with our horses and ourselves and present it on a platform for everyone to enjoy. This work is much more sensitive than everything else out there with fashionable labels and hype. It is not as researched and introspective and not to be confused with The Tao of Equus by Kohanov. But it offers a very powerful lesson on a scale that everyone can relate to and understand. After all, if it's for the good of the horse/human journey and the salvation of the horse's mind, what could be a more worthy accomplishent? I applaud Elizabeth Kaye McCall! From a life long horsewoman.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
