“Far more than a book about how to care for a horse, though it stands out as one of the best on the subject . . . beautiful” (Susan Richards, author of Chosen by a Horse). This unique guide to horsemanship incorporates Eastern philosophy to describe how horses understand and respond to the flow of vital energy around them, and how they use this energy, called chi, to communicate with their herd, express dominance, and sense predators. Written by the award-winning author of The Scalpel and the Soul, and including forewords by Monty Roberts and Dr. Robert Miller, Zen Mind, Zen Horse shares safe, simple techniques to make you more receptive to your animal’s chi, so you can develop a calm and effective training style that will not only help your horse follow commands, but strengthen the spiritual bond between horse and rider.

Although midlife has been traditionally viewed as a time of decline, science and experience are demonstrating that most of our fears are unsupported.

In Stable Wisdom, lifelong horsewoman Shirley Potterton provides a one-of-a-kind guide for women on a midlife journey that encourages transformation and positive changes with the help of an equine companion. Potterton, whose love for horses was rekindled at midlife, relies on experiences from her own journey of self-discovery as well as others’ to share powerful tools and exercises to help women embrace the wisdom of an intuitive creature in order to move forward, develop new skills, and utilize innate strengths. Through a step-by-step plan that can be applied with or without a horse, women can learn how to • listen to the inner voice for direction; • create and renew energy levels; • develop a courageous approach to life; • bring insight, wisdom, and experience to leadership roles; and • initiate self-reflection without judgment. Stable Wisdom provides valuable guidance, tools, and confidence for any woman in midlife who dares to think big and is ready to discover her own unique wisdom and implement exciting life changes.
