“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.”

The moment Joanne Schoenwald calmed this 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 Joanne’s 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.
Written by the bestselling novelist, also known as Josephine Moon, Horse Rescue is a beautiful and moving collection of true stories. Be inspired by true stories of rescue horses and their people, who shine in adversity, rise through the challenges of cancer, defeat all odds to go to the Olympics, and find light and hope after prison. Celebrate the incredible bond between humans and their rescue horses, proving love, kindness and rescuing those in need is never an accident, but a life-changing gift.
‘What brings me joy are the inspiring, goose-bumping, enlightening rescue stories of exhilarating triumph, quiet meditative wisdom, life-changing moments and powerful self-healing.’
– Joanne Schoenwald
Joanne travelled around Australia, interviewing people who have rescued a horse and talking about the way that horse has changed their life. It’s a topic very close to her heart, having rescued many horses herself and experienced great life changes as a result.
