book cover amazonWhen I wrote the post about giving away five signed copies of my new book, Horse Listening: Stepping Forward to Effective Riding, I asked people to enter by writing a brief comment about why they wanted the book. I was absolutely not prepared for the wave of feedback that followed (I do read each and every comment that comes through here).

Believe it or not, I had no idea that the words I type on this end of the keyboard are making such a difference to so many readers (and riders) on the other end. It was simply amazing to have names and thoughts reflected back with such generosity and kindness.

I am thrilled that the articles in Horse Listening are making an impact on people's relationships with their horses. With thanks to each one of you for taking the time to participate in this draw and for reading.

Here are the winners of the draw.

I print all the articles and re-read regularly. It would be so nice to have them organized in book form. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

Hello, first off congratulations on the writing of your book. I have been following your posts and find them very helpful and inisghtful. I love horses and find it quite interesting to understand how they think and to become one with your horse. I would love a signed copy of your book, however I feel it should go to someone that may not be able to afford it. I would gladly pay for a copy to allow another to possibly win the free copy.

I’ve been receiving your very informative, motivational, and useful emails since last year. I wish I had been introduced to Horse Listening sooner. Having your signed book at my fingertips would be wonderful!

I cannot wait for this book. I’m starting to shop for my first horse and know that I have tons more to learn. I’ve ridden for years but want to know how to really listen and connect with my horse.
