Horses That Save Lives: True Stories of Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual Rescue | [Cheryl Dudley]

Horses That Save Lives: True Stories of Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual Rescue

There is no denying that the emotional bond between horses and the humans who love them can reach mystical proportions, and nowhere is that relationship more evident than in these 24 true-life accounts of horses rescuing people. Many of the stories recount incidents where death or physical injury was imminent, and only because a horse intervened are the narrators alive to tell the tale.

Audible Editor Reviews

Anne Brendle performs Cheryl Dudley’s moving audiobook with a warmth and sensitivity in keeping with the subject matter, which is at times almost mystical. Whether the remarkable horses in these 25 firsthand accounts are rescuing their owners from physical calamity or bringing them back from the brink of cancer or drug addiction, Horses That Save Lives captures a world in which animals and humans can attain spiritual harmony. Brendle's voice compels a listener to believe in that union.

Dudley is an accomplished writer on the equine theme, especially when it comes to Appaloosas. This unique collection truly shows her love for horses and her faith in their healing powers.

Publisher's Summary

Lives restored to safety, health, and self-esteem through contact with horses.

There is no denying that the emotional bond between horses and the humans who love them can reach mystical proportions, and nowhere is that relationship more evident than in these 24 true-life accounts of horses rescuing people. Many of the stories recount incidents where death or physical injury was imminent, and only because a horse intervened are the narrators alive to tell the tale. Other chapters describe that other plane of salvation where contact with a horse through ownership, employment, or a variety of therapeutic programs has restored mental health, peace of mind, and self-esteem. Narrators include a 17-year-old Apache youth whom a horse-rescue project retrieved from drug abuse; a mother whose young son was about to be dragged to his death before the horse recognized the child’s plight; a Vietnam veteran with post-traumatic stress disorder whose work with horses keeps him on an even keel; and the owner of a Miniature Horse that serves as a “seeing eye” guide animal. As varied as the stories are, all share the same conclusion: “My horse saved my life.”
