If dogs can be angels, there is no reason horses can't be guides on a spiritual journey. Broersma, an experienced horse trainer and instructor with a special outreach to handicapped riders, has written a gently phrased book that champions horses "with power, grace, and beauty, offering their mythic talents to teach us greater compassion for all sentient life." Including simple rituals, Broersma argues for the horse in terms that might well apply to any of the animals we view as companions. The full treatment of the horse's archetypal power as spirit guide, however, remains to be written. For most collections. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
