Summary
"From his first time riding at age ten, William Shatner has felt a deep love for horses. Whether riding them, communicating with them, or simply appreciating their beauty, he has been enthralled by horses ever since he was a child. And for decades, he has sought to bring that joy to others -- children, veterans, and those with disabilities, among others -- through his annual Hollywood Charity Horse Show. In this book, Shatner speaks from the heart about the remarkable effect horses have had on his life, and on the lives of others. Drawing not just from his own decades of experience but also from a wealth of classic horse stories, this book captures the unique connection between humans and horses -- and the power, courage, mindfulness, and healing that they can inspire in us."--
