Biography

It was 2007. I saw a video. The opening scene showed a young man astride a brown gelding moving swiftly along a forest trail at the head of group of grey riderless horses. Downhill and uphill they moved at varying paces. Horse and human put their trust entirely in each other, for they used no tack or tools. The human trusted that his horse would carry him safely. The horse trusted that his human would guide him safely. Their connection was profound. It was not the riding that drew me but the bond between horse and human. It was the most powerful that I had ever seen on various levels. And I knew there and then that I also wanted such a relationship with a horse. So I went in search of it. And I found it.

My books on horses concern my journey since 2007. They include reflections on my experience and what I have learned, including articles written along the way. My final book on horses, Being Humans for Horses, synthesizes all that I have learned.
