RIDING HOME provides riveting examples of how “Equine Therapy” has become one of today’s most effective cutting-edge methods of healing. Parents will discover how horses can profoundly enhance their child’s emotional development. Horses empower a child’s self-worth and the sense of values, which help many to overcome some of society’s compulsive obsessions with technology, materialism, and celebrity…. “Tim Hayes [is] a great storyteller blessed with passion for his subjects, horse and human. The lessons you’ll take away from this beautiful volume of healing and love between man and nature will stay with you for a long time. Tim Hayes has made this his life work and the world is a better place for It. “  — From the Foreword by Robert Redford.
