The Path of the Horse book cover

Review by author 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.

Review by Margrit Coates
animal communicator and author of
Healing for Horses, Horses Talking and Connecting with Horses

Despite being in the 21st century, the horse is still much misunderstood. Myths perpetuate about how to look after, handle, and train horses. Who the horse is, is not considered as humans lose their way in intellectual posturing or focusing on systems or methods. Whilst the horse stands waiting for help, people argue about which system of horse management is the best, which guru to follow.

When we follow the true path of the horse however, it becomes a light bulb moment of clarity, and then we can understand the horse, and in doing so better know ourselves. In Stormy May’s book The Path of the Horse, the heart and soul of the horse shines from every page – clear, loud and profound. It is a book of truth about horses, it is Who the horse is. This is a brilliant book and much needed.

More and more horse owners are seeking a better way to care for and interact with their horses. The horse world is steeped, some might say mired, in tradition and change is difficult. It is not always an easy road when one challenges the “way it has always been done.” Stormy May’s The Path of the Horse is a wonderful account of her sometimes difficult awakening to the realities of the horse world as most know it. Her raw honesty in sharing her journey is inspirational and her insight into the process is very helpful for those wanting to move forward, but questioning everything and confused and conflicted. It is especially poignant as it comes from not just a horse owner/lover, but someone who was very successful as a rider/trainer and made a great living with horses. A must read for anyone wanting to find a better way.

    I sold my sweet, beautiful gelding Arab, because I was afraid to ride him. I sold him to a neighbor, who had him 3 months and sold him to to HIs neighbor, who gave him to his 13 y/o daughter. My psychic said my horse feels anxious when ridden by this young girl.

    I would like to try to buy him back, and rise above my fear. I would like to open my front door and call to him. I visited him a few days ago. He put his nose on my face and listened to me talk for 20 min. He followed me from inside the fence, and when I drove off, he tossed his head. I thought that gesture was in frustration.

    I was so sad to leave.

    I would like to buy your book. I don’t have a way to play your DVD, can I get it as a download to my iPad?

    Thank you

I am so glad to be a part of this journey…terrified…relieved…full of dreams… The new is never easy. But thank goodness I’m not on my own. And one day I will dance with my horses. And for the first time in 20 years I am reaching out to horses again like they are strange to me, but beautiful and enchanting. I am a child again, and hey, that’s scary, but also full of new light and colour. Thank you. The Path of the Horse is a huge Beginning.
