Paula Josa-Jones shares a unique perspective on how we can create a more intimate relationship with our horses and ourselves, and it is a joy to see how awareness of the deeper connections between horses and humans can blossom. Her approach is truly that of a Compassionate Equestrian.

Done well, the connection between horse and rider evolves into a dance between two equal partners. Force is never part of this. Paula Josa-Jones reminds us of this in her beautiful book. She offers a dancer's perspective on the process that transforms training into art.

About the reading at Ellen Lynch's Gallery in Chatham, NY:
Last night was SO wonderful!!! I just lapped up every word Paula said. When I wasn't smiling from ear to ear I was holding back a tear! All that talk about connection really resonated with me! You brought such a beautiful group of people together and your gallery was just the most perfect venue!
