Riding from the Seat of Your Soul came about after I had read Wayne Dyers book about the wisdom of the Tao. After living with horses for over forty years, I experienced the power that they have to change lives on a day-to-day basis, not only my own but also the lives of my students. I will never forget the transformation of a little boy who was eight years old and who had never spoken a word. He garbled, and every therapy that had been tried failed to elicit speech. I was teaching Special Olympics equestrian at the time on my farm in Jamaica, and one day, I thought I heard him say the name of the horse he liked to ride. His teacher and I were sure we were mistaken, so we asked him again: What did you say? He repeated the name of the horse. It was the first word he had ever spoken! Of course, we were all in tears of joy, and it was an experience I will never forget. After reading Dr. Dyers Living the Wisdom of the Tao, I thought to myself that some of the philosophical ideas could be related to not only the way we live our lives but also the way we treat our horses as well. This book has something for everyone, and you dont have to be involved with horses to get the idea.
A journey through life – facing challenges like sexual abuse and a violent home invasion. Many women, mothers, girls and men can relate to the story of triumph over adversity, but how many people had horses as their councellors? This is a story of personal struggle, a life after the pain, where peace was found, confidence regained and a life transformed by encounters with 4 footed life coaches.
