Continuing the saga begun in “Tom Named by Horse” ... “Three years after the death of Tall Dog, Tom Named By Horse and Soft Cloud have turned the little soddy, the lands granted them by Red Cloud, and the lean-to barn into a thriving horse ranch, fulfilling Tom’s dream. The Plains Indians Wars, or Red Cloud’s war, is mostly behind them, and the lands have had their transformation as Red Cloud’s vision had warned years earlier. Trailing horses from the ranch to Denver city has become an annual event for Tom, Buck and the rest, and this is the story of that trail. In the spirit of a good old John Wayne movie, vengeance, cattle and horse thieves, a dirty sheriff and corrupt mayor, and a wedding make this year’s drive a ride you’ll want to tag along on.”  I hope you’ll have a read. I promise you’ll love the adventure!

Howdy Friends!
“It’s for the Horses,” truly is for the horses. At the urgings of friends who enjoy our Coffee Clutch blog I’ve compiled 3 years of my horse related posts into this book. You’ll enjoy stories about their spirituality, communication, emotions, needs, care, connection, health, exercises, housing, foot care and more. This is not a book about riding or training horses. This is a book on my thoughts, ideas and suggestions on how folks might find the joy in doing things for the horse, with the horse’s point of view as the leading guide. It is my hope to help as many people as possible learn to hear the horse, feel their spirit, and in that way help horses and their people everywhere. ~ Gitty Up, Dutch Henry 

Praise for "It's For The Horses"
Dutch Henry is on a mission to help people see their horses with new eyes, to listen with new ears, to touch their lives with greater sensitivity and awareness. It has often been said that our horses are our greatest teachers. Dutch Henry, who has opened his heart, mind and soul to the horse, is living proof of that statement. Enjoy the learning as we join Dutch on a remarkable journey. ~ Bobbie Jo Lieberman—Editor-in-Chief, trailBLAZER magazine

Dutch Henry finds joy as he guides the horse/human relationship closer to and into this space. This project compiles Dutch Henry’s years of experience gathering helpful—sometimes life-altering—exercises for the horse. This ability to help the horse sometimes reciprocates in a life-altering shift in the human. Dutch has found and follows the guidance of horse professionals who honor that which he honors. These exercises are based on the truth of the whole horse—emotional, mental, physical. Enjoy the wonderful way of Dutch Henry’s writing. Enjoy soaking in this supportive way with your horse. Enjoy the shift in you and your horse’s relationship.~ Diane J. Sept, Connected Riding Senior instructor and owner of Back To Basics Equine Awareness

In this book Dutch covers what we can do to become better guardians for our equines by understanding their needs, truly encompassing mind, body and soul. I think that if horses could write, they would have compiled a book like this! It’s For the Horses is a passionate, highly useful resource for all people who want to do right by the equines in their life. This book belongs in every horse person’s library, but best kept within close reach as it is a book to be referred back to often.

~ Lisa Ross-Williams, Publisher/Editor-In-Chief, Natural Horse Magazine and author of the award-winning book, Down-To-Earth Natural Horse Care.

I believe that things would immediately improve for every horse on this planet if we could effect one simple little change, one tiny little shift in perspective. Dutch Henry believes this as well and that is why I so strongly recommend his latest book, It’s For the Horses. Because if we could convince every horse owner on the planet to make every decision about their horses from the perspective of the horse, then everything would change immediately. Relationship, training and the health and happiness of the horse. Kathleen and I have proven it. Dutch Henry has proven it. And everything he has written in It’s For the Horses will lift you closer and closer to those goals. And closer and closer to your horses. Read it. You will not regret it. Nor will your horses. ~ Joe Camp, author of the national best-seller, The Soul of a Horse—Life Lessons from the Herd and its Amazon #1 best-selling sequel Born Wild—The Soul of a Horse
