'I really believe he knew I was there to help and make his life better. It was my main goal that he would never see a day of fear again in his whole life.' - Eleisha, with her horse Phantom
The moment Joanne Schoenwald calmed her frail, dogger-bound accidental horse, he rested his forehead over her chest, directly over her heart. It was one of the most powerful moments of her life - and she would never be the same again.
This spurred a transformative journey of exhilarating triumph, inspiring connections, powerful self-healing and quiet meditative wisdom as Joanne launched a quest to change the lives of horses, one rescue at a time. The biggest miracle of this journey was learning the simple truth that - time after time - a person may set out to rescue a horse, yet a horse returns the rescue a hundred times over.
