I recently had the honor and good fortune to become part of a team of amazing equine professionals, who partner with horses in their professions, for the book "Horse as Teacher: The Path to Authenticity Through Horses". This is the first of a series of ten books about how horses transform people's lives and is due to be released this May.
The group is diverse and there are coaches, therapists, and natural horse trainers in the group. I am truly blessed as an equine artist to be included with these visionaries! It was humbling and daunting at the same time. I didn't know where to start but as of tonight my chapter is well on its way to completion.
Tonight we had our first teleconference where we all shared little pieces of ourselves and got to know each other. As one person put it, we were all members of a new herd! We also learned that well known equine photographer Tony Stromberg is designing the book cover and providing the picture. His beautiful books are Spirit Horses and The Forgotten Horses.
It seems there is a very large movement, being called horse consciousness, where people are teaming up with horses to better the lives of both humans and horses. Horses have an innate ability to mirror and reflect elements of ourselves right back to us if we are open to receiving the messages.
I can't wait to see the cover. It is scheduled to be completed next week and I will post it as soon as I have it.
