Format: Hardcover
I've been riding on and off all my life since my grandfather put me on a horse at the tender age of three. This book explores the relationships we, as women, have with our beasties, and does so beautifully. Through the words of 22 women from all walks of life: cowgirls to princesses; barrel racers to show jumpers; we see the intricate, emotional, complex relationship that women have with their horses.
The book has an essay on horses by each of the women featured, and is illustrated with beautiful photographs, expressive watercolors, textural oils, and graceful line drawings. It's a book to be savored, read in the evening when you won't be distracted, sipped gently like a fine wine, not gulped. It's a book to come back to again and again, to re-read the essays, to empathize with the writers, and to ponder anew the comments that GaWaNi makes after each piece. It's a book which captures, in physical form, the ephemeral relationship we have with our 'mulies. It's rather surprising that a man could do so, but given this man's expertise with horses, I suppose not so much so.
If you're looking for a gorgeous book to celebrate the special bond between horses and women, this is the one to buy.

I received this book about a month ago and can't put it down. I've read it over and over again, needless to say I have lost many hours of sleep because I just can't unglue myself from it. The intense emotion and enthusiasm that these women express towards their love of horses really hit home for me. A very compelling and insightful book for anyone who has a passion for this magnificient animal.

I don't think an average male would be capable of collecting and organizing such amazing stories from such sensitive women. The art work, photographs and text truly convey the connection between women and horses. This book honors and validates what we women have always known. Thank you.

Format: Hardcover
"Of Women & Horses" is a thoroughly engaging compendium of essays by several horsewomen, augmented by the commentary of GaWaNi Pony Boy, the photography of Gabrielle Boiselle, and illustrations by diverse artists. The unifying themes are the relationships, insights, experience, and fascination of women with respect to the horse. From Heather E. Greaves's "A Woman's Metamorphosis with Horses" to Lisa Kiser's "The Horse in the Woman's Role" to Martha Josey's "My Love for Horses," these 22 informative, inspiring essays are very highly recommended reading for students of human/animal relationships, the psychological influence and impact of horses upon the human psyche, women's studies, and equine studies reading lists.

I am not even a "horse" person, and I thought this was superb. It has a lovely, touching collection of photos, art, and the written word. It taps directly into the indescribable nature of the link between animals and their people.

I found this book to be very interesting and enjoyable. Pony has done an outstanding job. The stories are heartfelt, touching and as unique as each author. The photographs and artwork are beautiful. This book is a must have for every horse lover or anyone who enjoys good reading. Perhaps more important a must read for any parent considering buying a horse for their childern.

I bought this book as a gift for my youngest daughter who shares the love of horses with me. The photos are gorgeous. The essays of these horse women are beautifully written, full of imagery and delve into the spirit of women's connection with these magnificent animals. I highly recommend this book to collect and cherish.
