Lead With Your Heart
Working with horses can be a transformative experience. Their soft eyes, wild spirit, and shy honesty offer a glimpse of how entirely different the horse's mind is from our own. Allan J. Hamilton, a neurosurgeon and a pioneer in equine-assisted therapy, distills in 112 short essays what horses have taught him about forgiveness, true leadership, courage, and love.
