Stable: A Therapist and the Healing Nature of Horses

Emily Swisher

"Emily Swisher's beautiful prose illustrates how an emotional connection with horses helped both her and her clients gain insight into their own emotions." -Temple Grandin, Author Animals Make us Human


When Emily Swisher follows her dream to work with horses at an equine-therapy ranch first in Colorado and later in Montana, she helps people heal from their wounds and traumas. Emily's story is interwoven with those of other inspiring individuals and groups she has supported, from victims of abuse and troubled children to the bereaved and broken-hearted. She sees the transformation of individuals, sometimes subtle and small, other times hard-won and miraculous, while healing her own long-buried scars and rediscovering the joy and fearlessness she lost along the way.


In this vivid and insightful memoir, steeped in wisdom, she creates lyricism through her life experience and empathy and the soul-stirring western landscapes. STABLE, a love letter to the transformative power of horses, explains why these extraordinarily intuitive animals have the ability to mirror human emotions, helping us to discover hidden parts of ourselves to overcome trauma, bring peace and show us how to live more authentically and mindfully.
