. . . but it wasn't the horse's fault

a rambling catchall

by Julie Suhr

illustrated by Judith Ogus



If your day is long and you need a smile, you will find it in the pages of this book. Each chapter tackles a different subject. By the last page, the heros are the horses who have inspired and then guided many lives to take a different course.

This is a story of emotions, the incredible soaring that accompanies conquering fear and the empty feeling when it escapes you. Mix it with levity, and you have ...but it wasn’t the horse’s fault!

For the non-horse lovers there is plenty of literary substance to ponder. The captive horse lover will nod in agreement for most of us have trod the same path. It will never be long enough.

Richly illustrated with both pictures and colorful cartoons, a visual delight accompanies the text with the message: It is always the trail ahead that counts, not the one left behind.
