Hope from the Heart of Horses: How Horses Teach Us about Presence, Strength, and Awareness

Linda Kohanov, Author, Kathy Pike, Author . Skyhorse $24.95 (206p) ISBN 978-1-60239-660-9

Ostensibly meant to offer life lessons for horse owners, this book delivers, instead, a rather New Age blend of personal experiences and observations from Pike (Pathway to a Radiant Soul ), life coach and founder of the “Mind Body Method.” Though the title might lead readers to expect lively and varied stories of human/horse interaction, Pike offers tediously similar tales of deep connection and understanding between horse and rider, including how to achieve a respectful relationship with a fierce-spirited mustang. Readers learn that horses are sentient beings, capable of diagnosing emotional and physical illness, and choosing their own partners for lessons. Horses can also influence chakras and communicate telepathically. In the last pages, Pike gets to the instructions, too little, too late. (Apr.)
