“I slept on that horse, and ate breakfast, lunch, and dinner on the toy Wonder pony. When I woke out of a dead sleep I cried, because I wasn’t done riding my Wonder horse. From that moment, the breath of horse-crazy was instilled in me.”
There wouldn’t be half the heart or as rich a message without the generosity of the women who shared their stories and wisdom in The Breath of Horse Crazy – The Love Affair Between Women and Horses. Most of you haven’t heard of these horse-crazy ladies before because they’re not household names (yet.)
Each one brings a unique history and perspective to her dream and life with horses. Maybe one of the stories triggered a memory, touched your heart, or suggests an answer to a question that won’t go away. You are welcome to contact any of them through the links on an individual page or through this website.
I asked each one to share her story because I know her, trust her, and have personally benefited from our friendships. These ladies are dedicated, genuine, wise, and love everything about horses. They open their hearts, homes, and years of experience to all who may benefit.
Most have some connection to ministry, whether it’s official or simply because they breathe and share the love of Christ to all with eyes to see.
All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.unknown

For everyone with the love of horses in their DNA.
Why do women love horses? Husband, fathers, and sons try to understand us but often give up, accepting that the woman in his life was born that way and it’s better to accept than resist. If you’re in the sisterhood of horsewomen, I invite you to share the dream.
