In For the Love of Horse, author Lynn Hummer chronicles her experiences rescuing slaughter-bound horses, especially pregnant mares. Over the years, her work with these horses has generated within her a spiritual awareness and a healing she never expected. Through the horse-human connection, they have taught her about being present and helped her find balance in a hectic world.
Hummer shares some hard truths, exploring the fact that what is generally accepted as proper treatment for horses can in many ways be considered abuse. She reveals the abhorrent practices of worldwide horse industries and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. She endeavors to bring awareness to these despicable facts while touting horses as healers, best friends, and even therapists.
A better world can, and should, exist for horses—For the Love of Horse offers a path forward.
