There is a warm and awed feeling I get when I am browsing my worn horse book collection. Seated in a comfy chair with book in hand, a mug of hot chocolate steaming, and the morning light tracing golden patterns on the maple floor, I feel embraced by the horse wisdom of ages past. I open a book and study the grainy black and white photos of uniformed men, effortlessly erect astride airborne white stallions. Long gone, some had penned their thoughts & experiences – and now timeless on paper their words carry on in my thoughts today.
Imagine what the world was like when horses far outnumbered cars and commute was actually a trail ride to one’s destination. How much closer to nature, to the rhythms of one’s mount, and perhaps even to oneself one might have felt. I choose another book written by the founders of Cavalia. Enjoyed the show a few years ago; they must experience true oneness with the heart & soul of horses…
I am thrilled to be able to open a new BOOK SECTION at Just Equus!!! I have picked a few titles that I love or am interested in. But I would love your advice to grow a fine selection in our Library. Please share your favorites with us (post a comment). We are listening!
