We’re starting to collect reviews from the advance copies of the book we’ve sent out. Here’s a wonderful one we received today.
Review of The Path of the Horse book by Monica Marlowe:
In The Path of the Horse: From Competition to Compassion Stormy May candidly shares her personal journey from being an accomplished horse trainer and competition judge to being together with horses – and humans – in heart and spirit. Using stunning photography, beautiful artwork, and philosophical quotations, she weaves a tapestry, a vision, of a new world for horses and humans based on love, peace, and compassion.
Faced with new information about riding and standard horse training practices, she takes the reader along on her journey into herself, into her own heart, and asks us to do the same. Stormy May’s story is compelling, thought-provoking, and heart-opening. Her journey is both an inspiration and an invitation to look at horses and at life through the eyes of your heart.
Stormy May’s story completely changed my relationship with my own horse and helped me to remember who I truly am. I give this book my highest and most heartfelt recommendation; read it and follow your heart.
“We must understand that unnecessary articles and goods that a man possesses reduce his power to imbibe happiness from the surroundings.” -Ivan Illich
The preceding quote is from an article about messages that were passed on through Gandhi’s hut. The perspective of humanity given to us by the author Ivan Illich in 1978 is valuable for anybody who wants to understand the direction we’re going with OurHorses.
