Since 1991 I have been on a mission of changing the lives of horses and the people who love them. It never ceases to amaze me how people, in turn, evolve through their horses. Merja's background in horses and relationship with me spans many years, yet I had no idea how powerful a writer she is, nor how deeply she understands and connects to the needs and emotions of those on a healing journey - with or without horses. A safe space is what we all need in order to dind our feet and reconnect to what really matters in life.
