Horses can help people fix ANYTHING!
Archie is not your average horse. He helps people get rid of their flies… you know, the things that bug us! When horses get flies, they swish their tails to make them go away, but since people don’t have tails, they come to Archie for help.
When people are having a tough time with life, when they can’t seem to tell what is wrong and what’s right. They come here to see me, and even those who have doubts, are just blown away when they figure things out.“
This creative book for all ages takes a look at how powerful using horses can be to help people heal on the inside.
This book touchingly introduces readers to the power horses can have youth and adults face and overcome the difficult struggles in their lives. This concept is now a professional model of mental health treatment known as Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, where a licensed mental health professional and an equine specialist work together with horses and clients to help remove the ‘flies’ and live healthier happier lives.”

“You can’t fool horses and you can’t lie to them. They’ll hear what you think long before you say anything, and if what you say differs from what you think… they’ll believe what you think every time.”
