WHEN YOU WERE A LITTLE GIRL, did you dream of horses, choosing Breyers over Barbies — plastic horses over plastic dolls?
FOR THE PAST SEVERAL DECADES, has your life been more about taking care of others than taking care of yourself while your dreams have gathered dust on long forgotten shelves?

ARE YOU AT THAT POINT IN LIFE when you've begun to wonder whether you'll ever find the courage to do all the things you wanted to do someday?

Offering horses as both metaphor and solution to the natural malaise that often rears its head just about the time we blow out that "midlife" birthday candle, this is the book that will help you ask (and answer), "What about my dreams?" and "Is it my turn yet?" and "If not now, when?" and best of all, "If now, how?"

"MELINDA FOLSE speaks to those women whose hearts yearn for reconnection at a time when life seems to have run its own course and childhood dreams of playing with horses are only a vague memory. She not only helps you rekindle the possibility of bringing a little equine energy into your life, she also takes you on a gentle journey of small steps to help your childhood passion become a reality." --Koelle Simpson, Life Coach, "Horse Whisperer," and Co-Teacher with Martha Beck of "How to Make Things Happen," an Equine-Assisted Learning Retreat

About the Author

plus icon minus icon
MELINDA FOLSE (formerly Melinda Folse Kaitcer) is a writer based in Fort Worth, Texas, who for the past twenty-something years has considered herself a woman on a mission to write stories that can make a difference. As former senior writer for Clinton Anderson's Downunder Horsemanship and co-author of his recent bestseller, Lessons Well Learned (Trafalgar Square Books, 2009), she came face-to-face many times (personally and in learning the stories of countless others) with the soul-provoking lessons provided by midlife horsemanship. After a career spent writing the success stories of others, including Grandmaster: A Story of Struggle, Triumph and Taekwondo (about the life of Ninth Degree Taekwondo Grandmaster Won Chik Park), and dozens of America's top entrepreneurs as senior writer of Time Warner's Millionaire Blueprints Magazine, she realized she had a story to tell of her own. Finding herself to be just one among millions of Baby Boomer women who once dreamed of horses and are now recapturing that dream, Melinda let her own struggles do the talking in this tongue-in-cheek account that is a little bit memoir, a little more self-help, a whole lot of practical guidebook, and all heart. This is the book Melinda wishes she had been able to find when she made the bold decision to get back in the saddle at age 45. She lives in Texas with her family that includes two horses who continue to set her straight every single day.
