Callie Smith Grant in her new book, “horse of My Heart book coverThe Horse of My Heart” published by Revell gives us Stories of the Horses We Love.

From the back cover:  Shining coat flashing in the sun. Silky mane rippling in the wind. A toss of the head and the stamp of a hoof.

Few of God’s creatures are as noble and soul-stirring as the horse. Even those of us who aren’t lucky enough to have horses of our own seem to have an innate desire to connect with these beautiful, regal beasts. As children we read stories about them, collected models of them, and tacked posters of them up on our walls. Throughout history they have carried us and calmed us, pulled our loads and pulled at our heartstrings. They give us a taste of wildness and yet make us feel at home.

In this inspiring collection, you’ll meet horses who show up at the right time, who help their humans learn important truths, and who rescue the very people who rescued them. These true stories of horses and the people who love them are sometimes touching, sometimes humorous, and sometimes miraculous. Always they are inspiring, like the horses themselves. They will touch your heart, renew your spirit, and show you that surely God had us in mind when he created these magnificent creatures.

The Lone Ranger had Silver, Zorro had Tornado, Roy Rogers had Trigger and when we were growing up we had the Westerns with all those horses. Let’s face it if we already had a dog as a pet our next choice would be a horse. There is something about a horse that draws us. Me, personally, I think there is a nobleness about them. They allow themselves to eat from our hand, ride on their backs and pull their loads. Ms. Grant has pulled together these wonderful stories from all these various authors to give us the complexity that is a horse. There is an intimate relationship between man and horse as well as woman and horse. In these true stories horses help in the healing process, help some in adjusting to life’s changes and then together human and horse where the horse is rescued and then the horse does the rescuing. All in all a wonderful look at some of the most magnificent animals in creation.
