The poems explore a gamut of emotions: the physical and mental labor, the thrills, the injuries, the admiration, the lessons, the heartbreak, and the overwhelming obsession of being smitten by them.
DAWSONVILLE, Ga. (PRWEB) October 27, 2013
Author Barbara J. Hutson was inspired to write her new book “Knowing Horses by Heart: A Collection of Poems Written with Appreciation for the Horses in My World” (published by iUniverse), wanting to share the magic of horses with the world. She found that there was a gap in literature which addressed the realities of having a relationship with horses, and this is her way of filling that gap for readers.
“Knowing Horses by Heart,” reveals the up-close and personal experience of having horses. The poems explore a gamut of emotions: the physical and mental labor, the thrills, the injuries, the admiration, the lessons, the heartbreak, and the overwhelming obsession of being smitten by them.
“I have a horse farm, Stillwater Farms, in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Georgia,” says Hutson. “My horses are the creators of my experiences and memories as a person, and there is a quiet revolution taking place in proper horse care. Most books about horses tend to either glamorize horses or provide how-to manuals on care, training or riding, but my book delves deeper into actual human horse relationships.”
