IF CHANGING THE WAY YOU WORK WITH HORSES COULD CHANGE THE WORLD... By developing deeper compassion for our horses, and for ourselves, equestrians are on a path to transcending differences and disagreements, learning instead to empathize and connect more closely with the "global collective" of horses and horsepeople. A community of compassionate equestrians can positively influence society on many levels.This book explores the simple changes any horseperson can make that will ultimately have a vast impact on the state of the horse industry and on the world as a whole.

...WOULD YOU DO IT? I would highly recommend this book for anyone who loves animals—not just horses—and wants to gain an understanding of them on a deeper, more intimate level. The authors offer us numerous, often profound insights, through their own varied experiences and backgrounds, regarding the integration of compassion into all areas of our lives. With deeper reading, one begins to appreciate more fully, how the immutable relationship between human health, animal health, and that of our environment—a world of One Health—is the real basis for improving the life of our entire planet."
