A percentage of the profits from this book will be donated to the Fiona Oaks Animal Sanctuary This is the most controversial horse book ever written and explodes the myth that traditional methods of horse-keeping and how we train the domesticated horse are acceptable. Pendal Spring Song has been the guide, teacher and mentor on this incredible journey towards veganism between human and horse. This book views the horse from the perspective of sentient being and is based on experience and research. This book is the fore runner of a movement which is awakening all over the world, as the new breed of horse guardians are stirring up a revolution and kicking back against the cruelty and ignorance dominating the horse world. For the reader, even if your interest is not specific to horses, this book is an inspiration and encourages positive thinking and stimulates everyone to 'think outside the box' with compassion and equality especially how we share this world with other species but importantly, that it is never too late to fulfil your dreams, be brave and challenge the status quo. This is a pioneering book which is important for the future of the horse and all animals.
