Gwen Petersen earlier enlightened us on the joys of shoveling manure. Now, in this delightful new collection of pithy and hilarious essays, she explains how her philosophy of life comes with a good dose of horse sense. Here’s advice on how to fall off a horse with style, dressing to avoid embarrassing your equine friend, 1,001 uses for bag balm, perfecting the care and feeding of veterinarians and farriers, cattle drives and brandings, and falling in love all over again (with a horse, that is). Petersen’s words are as amusing as they are instructive, and whether you’re a horse lover or simply someone in need of a down-to-earth laugh, this is a book you won’t want to miss.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Everything I Know About Life I Learned From My Horse is a memorable book for its equine and human characters: a wandering, social butterfly of a horse who thinks he is a king; a ranch owner’s wife who collects “flamingo art, flamingo ceramics, and flamingo doodads” and a narrator who is consistently above-board with what’s on her mind…To read this book is to join Petersen around a campfire, slapping knees together at the adventuresome blessing that is the horse life…At once a humorous memoir and legitimate guidebook, this book is an up-close-and-personal introduction to the cowgirl’s days and the charm of the horses that fill them.
