"Few animals have worked themselves as deeply into our culture and psyche as the horse.   Unfortunately many common management practices designed to provide the best of care have the opposite result.  In this book, Lisa Ross-Williams has provided a common sense way to maximize health and well-being the natural way."

Glen Dupree, DVM Homeopathy For The Animals


“To understand the natural horse — its health, psyche, environment — is a lifelong pursuit. And we readers are so fortunate to be able to peruse the wisdom and knowledge that Lisa Ross-Williams has gleaned over the years. This reference book, useful for new horse owners as well as experienced owners, allows us to present our horses with as natural a life as possible; having this guide is a present to all of us. Thank you, Lisa, for bringing this information to light.”

Linda Tellington-Jones, Founder of TTouch
