It’s for the Horses,

Truly is for the horses.

You’ll enjoy stories about their spirituality, communication, emotions, needs, care, connection, health, exercises, housing, foot care and more. This is not a book about riding or training horses. This is a book on my thoughts, ideas and suggestions on how folks might find the joy in doing things for the horse, with the horse’s point of view as the leading guide. It is my hope to help as many people as possible learn to hear the horse, feel their spirit, and in that way help horses and their people everywhere.

A horses advocates musing about their needs, spirit, gifts and care.

“I believe that things would immediately improve for every horse on this planet if we could affect one simple little change, one tiny little shift in perspective. Dutch Henry believes this as well and that is why I so strongly recommend his latest book, It’s For the Horses. Because if we could convince every horse owner on the planet to make every decision about their horses from the perspective of the horse, then everything would change immediately. Relationship, training and the health and happiness of the horse. Kathleen and I have proven it. Dutch Henry has proven it. And everything he has written in It’s For the Horses will lift you closer and closer to those goals. And closer and closer to your horses. Read it. You will not regret it. Nor will your horses.”

“Dutch Henry finds joy as he guides the horse/human relationship closer to and into this space. This project compiles Dutch Henry’s years of experience gathering helpful—sometimes life-altering—exercises for the horse. This ability to help the horse sometimes reciprocates in a life-altering shift in the human. Dutch has found and follows the guidance of horse professionals who honor that which he honors. These exercises are based on the truth of the whole horse—emotional, mental, physical. Enjoy the wonderful way of Dutch Henry’s writing. Enjoy soaking in this supportive way with your horse. Enjoy the shift in you and your horse’s relationship.”

“Dutch Henry is on a mission to help people see their horses with new eyes, to listen with new ears, to touch their lives with greater sensitivity and awareness. It has often been said that our horses are our greatest teachers. Dutch Henry, who has opened his heart, mind and soul to the horse, is living proof of that statement. Enjoy the learning as we join Dutch on a remarkable journey.”

Howdy Friends! I was asked about riding alone.... I have for many years preferred to ride alone. For me it's not a social thing, or an outing with friends. It's time for my horse and me to enjoy each other and nature. I see so many folks who only ride with others and...

Grandpop and Sportsmanship

  Howdy Friends!  Enjoy, "Grandpop and Sportsmanship." "Hey good to see ya, young fella," Grandpop stopped brushing ol' Blue, and waved me into the barn. I was surprised to find him in the barn. Usually on Sunday afternoons he'd take in a football game or two...

Veterans Day With Grandpop

Howdy Friends! I'd missed a few years of Grandpop's Veterans Day rides. Those years when I was all self-assured that whatever I had to do was the most important thing. I'm sorry I missed those years. I'm happy Grandpop waited for me to come to my senses. I'm not sure...

Horses and Comfort.

Howdy Friends! "Horses and Comfort." Many, when they need it, seek comfort in as many ways as there are people. Family, friends, God, pets, nature … And horses. Comfort is more than that, it’s support, it’s revitalization, it’s re-building and stabilizing. Horses know...
