When she agrees to take on one of the abused horses just rescued by the local SPCA, a new chapter opens in Susan Richards's difficult life.

She lost her mother at the age of five and was raised by uncaring relatives; she married unhappily and divorced; and she'd been an alcoholic. Now, at the age of forty-three, she lives with three horses who keep her company: the diva-like Georgia, boyish Tempo and hopelessly romantic Hotshot.

While trying to capture another horse assigned to her, Lay Me Down, a skeletal mare, walks into Susan's horse trailer of her own volition. When Susan agrees to take her, she begins to forge a special, healing relationship that alters her life.

Poignant and evocative, this is a book for anyone who has ever loved a horse, and for everyone who has ever lost a loved one.

This is an inspirational story of what family means, and what the loss of one can do to us, and for us. * Boston Globe *
Chosen by a Horse contains several extraordinary action sequences ... It also has moments of great silence and stillness ... I'll never forget Lay Me Down or Hotshot. * Newsday *
A tender lesson in courage and dependence. * Kirkus Reviews *
Two kindred spirits find each other in this beautifully written memoir about the human-animal bond. * Temple Grandin, author of Animals in Translation *
