I read a very good book recently that I wanted to share. Riding Home: The Power of Horses to Heal by Tim Hayes is an excellent book for anyone looking to better understand the amazing relationship between horse and human. Mr. Hayes covers his experience as a cowboy working on a cattle ranch, the horse training program with inmates, horses used in therapy for vets returning from war, as well as other horse human connections. The book explains the nature of the horse and why it is so well placed as a companion to the human psyche development. Mr. Hayes explains the science behind some of the psychological benefits of the horse connections and explains why horses have this amazing effect on people. This is well worth the read for anyone interested in the horse's ability to help heal people.
