Book Blurb

When Pam follows her dream to a farmhouse with five acres in northern France, she is able to live alongside her horses for the first time. Here, in the heart of nature, deeper insights are revealed into the healing connection between horse and human and the incredible power of presence to transform. Might it be that learning to honour and communicate with another species helps us to reframe the way we perceive each other, as well as how we might see ourselves? A pioneer in embodied horse-led therapy and leadership development, Pam’s story is interwoven with those of inspiring individuals and groups she has supported: from people experiencing relationship breakdown to large organisations looking for culture change; from the bereaved or lonely to the confused wishing to explore what next. Steeped in simple wisdom, the stories offer the reader a pragmatic, mindful template for personal transformation. ‘It is with grace that horses lead us gently to a place where forgiveness is possible and self-compassion takes the place of contempt. They draw us into a non-linear dimension where we can sink into the infinity of the moment and know deep peace and harmony.’ – Pam Billinge

I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Pam Billinge latest book: The Spirit of the Horse.

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I was approached to read Pam Billinge The Spirit of the Horse. I’m not a lover of horses in general but I appreciate their beauty. However, this is not a book about horses, far from it. It’s a book that opens your eyes, heart and mind giving us the insight of recognition why people react with situations, themselves and to others. Also it’s about how animals pick up on our emotions and how they can change feelings and atmospheres around us.

As an animal lover I understand how having a pet in your life can bring lightness, companionship and contentment. What Pam Billinge shows us is that there is an animal that can do all this and more and that is the horse. A humble animal that for centuries was used as a tool to move objects and transport people but now Pam with her expertise and patience brings to light a remarkable quality of the horse.

The Spirit of the Horse is a memoir of Pam’s plight to have her own equine centre for not only herself to appreciate these wonderful creatures but a centre to invite others to learn from the horses spirit and intelligence. This book journeys through years of struggle for the author to achieve her goal and she also talks through many and varied case files as a therapist she has witnessed.

I found myself thoroughly enraptured by this book and know I will pick it up often and re-read through a few cases when I feel my heart and mind needs a lift.

Pam Billinge has written an insightful, inspiriting, comforting and hopeful book.

I’d like to thank the publishers for bringing this book to my attention.
