"Tena's real-life stories are modern-day parables for the lessons horses have to teach us: Learn from your mistakes, trust your instincts and, above all, have fun. Some stories made me laugh out loud as I recalled being in similar predicaments. Others touched an emotional chord and made me cry. I came away from them longing to be in the nurturing presence of horses, soaking up all they have to offer—and always becoming a better person for it." —Stacey Nedrow-Wigmore, Managing Editor, Practical Horseman. "This book captures the reader's attention and prompts a smile as each chapter concludes. Horsemen and non-horsemen alike will find the pages easy to read, inspiring, and down-to-earth as we are reminded to treasure all of life's experiences and practical lessons." —Coagi Long, Program Director, Equine Affaire A tribute to horses and a treasure for horse-lovers This unique book shares life lessons lovingly learned in the company of horses—universal lessons about facing adversity, finding your niche in life, second chances, and more.
