The Book: Horse Wisdom Alchemy

by Katie Ryan, LMFT, EAGALA Certified


Ninety five years ago, born into a destiny of horses, a man used them to work the land. Farming in the Midwest was bleak and harsh at best. If you stay in one place for too long you will be struck by lightning. Having worked the land for so long, it actually took being struck by lightning to appreciate doing something different.


He rode the Continental Divide with the Governor of Minnesota on horseback. He lost his identity on a lonely hill in New Mexico.


His daughter, Katie carried on the tradition of love and obsession for horses. She experienced firsthand the love and loss of thesde great creatures. Katie became a licensed therapist in California and found a way to heal others using horses. Along the way she married, met good friends, (human and horse) and allowed each horse to transform her. Part memoir, part educational, nearly 100 years of true horse stories.


If you have a love or just a respect for horses you will go on this journey and hopefully be captivated by their beauty, poise, and pure guts.
