Beyond The Rainbow Bridge


Equestrians from all walks of life—from backyard riders to international competitors—share a common bond when it comes to the loss of a horse, whether it be through death or some other circumstance, such as being forced to sell due to finances. All such losses may cause us great grief. In a profound sense, this book was written for all of us.

Beyond the Rainbow Bridge was written to help equestrians (and those close to them) understand, cope with and, eventually, heal from, the loss of a horse.
