My Life at Sweetbrier

A Life Changed by Horses

What if you grew up on a horse farm and your single passion was to become a champion horseback rider? The problem is, you were born with a disability. Doctors tell your parents you’ll never walk, let alone ride. What will happen next? What does her dad do that changes her life? Will a failed racehorse and a handicapped girl become a winning team? This is the author’s true story of her journey. Even if Deanie prevails, will she find exactly the right horse to help her win?    Barnes & Noble

Hard Way to Go:

The Horse of a Lifetime

NC Matheny just happened to fall in love with an orphan foal that would define his life. First named "Trouble", then officially "Hard Way to Go", finally "Casey", this Tennessee Walking Horse was destined to bring joy and happiness. Through dramatic scenarios, funny anecdotes, and seasons of hope, the meager foal would grow to become a beautiful stallion facing extraordinary odds while inspiring everyone who meets him. The author intertwines his missionary work in Honduras with his love for horses. Twenty-two years of nurturing and friendship create an incredible testimony to God's power and the thrills of horsemanship.

Trust 'n Horses

A Guide to Successful Trust-Based Horsemanship and Life

Franklin Levinson

Horses need to trust they are safe in order to thrive. Without this trust in their safety, they will never relax, cannot learn, and will be forever nervous and anxious. This constant anxiety will cause undesirable and dangerous behavior for both the horse and the humans involved with it. "Trust ‘n Horses" explores the subject of trust and how it relates to domesticated horses, their training and their lives in the world of humans. This subject is addressed in a grounded, pragmatic style of writing, that is easily understandable and logical. It is a great resource for any horse lover.
