K.I.C.K. Your Fear of Horses–the book

   Fear is something that most of us have to deal with at some point when it comes to horses. It can range from a small, nagging fear that drains your joy to an almost overwhelming, crippling fear that prevents you from moving forward.

For me age and kids increased my concerns of how quickly I would recover from injury and judging by the questions that I get that may be true for others as well.

When Heidi asked if she could interview me for this book I said, “Yes!”

Fear is not something we should hide but instead look at and discuss. When I feel fear, horses or not, I try to stop and think about what ‘fear’ is trying to tell me. Is it a warning that I haven’t been complete? Is it a warning that I should get some advice from someone with more knowledge? Is it related to something going on in another area of my life?

I was able to read much of this book before it was published (a benifit of contributing to it:) and would recommend it for anyone with fear issues or as a gift to someone who is dealing with fear. This link should take you to an Amazon site where you can read more or order.

    Thanks, Stacy, for contributing to this book and for telling us about it. I ordered it immediately and can’t wait for it to come. Also, would it be possible for you to let us know when you have articles being published in magazines? I hate to miss any of your wisdom, and often only buy magazines that contain an article by you. I’m sure the magazines wouldn’t mind selling more issues!

    Thank you for all you do to make working with horses safer and more enjoyable for both horse and human. You are truly an inspiration.
