They say: Margrit Coates' particular empathy with horses and her success in dealing with their problems is now legendary. In this phenomenal book, she shows how you can learn the skill of hands-on healing to help improve your horse's well-being and behaviour and provides practical advice on when, where and how to do it. Throughout, Margrit shares case studies where horses who have been sick, distressed, traumatised or had behaviour problems have all been helped by hands-on healing.
Margrit Coates is Britain's leading animal healer and communicator, and partner in a holistic health clinic for animals. She also gives lectures and demonstrations, and runs courses on her animal healing methods for healers, animal healthcare professionals and horse owners.

Reviews - rated 4/5 based on customer reviews
The book contains ten chapters including those covering the inner matrix of the horse and how to link human and equine soul during the healing process; what is healing for horses, why they need healing and how to give a healing treatment including the position of chakras in the horse. The environment and its effect on the horse with regards to health and healing is also discussed, and a useful small list of organisations which are involved in equine health/training to become a practitioner is included at the back of the book. This section also lists contact details for Margrit, including a website, which some readers may find of interest. Compared with Margrit's second book, 'Healing for Pets', this first book is specifically for the horse owner/rider/carer, and there is less information as regards how to conduct the healing and ways to prepare yourself (e.g.through meditation and visualisation) than in the second book. I would recommend the reader who would like to follow Margrit's suggestions with regards to healing horses, but who is new healing, read the second book also, especially the chapters providing suggestions about 'tuning-in' with an animal's mind and thought processes.
As with my review of the second book, I feel I should pass a comment regarding the section on healing with crystals......more
