What if you discovered that you could eliminate most if not all of your horses' health, hoof, and behavior problems by doing one thing. Seriously. One single thing.
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.

About the Author
Camp has written, produced and directed seven theatrical motion pictures (including all of the Benji movies) cumulatively grossing well over the equivalent of $600 million in today's dollars, making him one of the most successful independent filmmakers of all time. In addition to his nine books about horses, and his recent God Only Knows, Joe has also written three novels from his own screenplays, and several children's books, and a Benji training book. He is also a passionate speaker.
Joe believes that anything is possible if you work hard enough and have faith in yourself and God. Even with all the accomplishments and media exposure, he is still in awe of his own success.
"Inside, I'm still a kid sitting in a dark theater in Little Rock, Arkansas, watching Disney's 'Song of the South' or reading books like the Black Stallion with happy tears rolling down my cheeks," he says. "To be able to bring that that kind of happiness to others is very special."
