Kelleher communicates the essence of partnership with a horse—and with God!

Sometimes a Woman Needs a Horse! Seeing God at Work in the Search for Partnership

Follow the author’s journey, as she becomes obsessed with distance riding and her experiences become lessons of personal growth.

Some books deserve a second chance. Sometimes a Woman Needs a Horse is one of them, believes the author, Betsy Kelleher. When her publisher went out of business earlier this year, she decided to republish a revised second edition with Xulon Press. The new edition is adorned with a fresh new cover, and a shorter subtitle, Seeing God at Work in the Search for Partnership, but it’s the same message that has already inspired thousands of readers.

Sometimes a Woman Needs a Horse! Seeing God at Work in the Search for Partnership (Revised Second Edition), ($15.99, paperback, 9781629526676; $7.99, e-book, 9781629526683) is a story of parallels between horse training principles and Christian discipleship, based on the author’s experiences while learning to train her first horse. When one obstacle after another prevented Fanny from going to a professional trainer, Betsy believed that God had something else in mind. A few days later, she met a young woman who became her best friend while helping train this headstrong, excitable mare.

Follow the author’s journey, as she becomes obsessed with distance riding and her experiences become lessons of personal growth. And then she meets Sally Swift and learns the amazing influence of Centered Riding principles. Riding in a clinic ends with an emotional success as Ms. Swift helps Fanny walk past a scary turkey. Back pages contain photos of the author and her horses.

Betsy Kelleher is a horse lover who writes from a Christian perspective. Her monthly column in the Illinois Horse Network newspaper appears under the heading “Sometimes God Uses Horses,” sharing horse related experiences with spiritual insight. The first edition of this book won first runner-up in the Legacy Nonfiction category of the Eric Hoffer Awards for 2009. First published in 2004, Sometimes a Woman Needs a Horse was a best seller for several years, according to the first publisher.
