Therapy Horse Children's Books
The Adventures of George the Therapy Horse ©
My name is Kathleen Timmermans and George is my horse. At the age of 60 I discovered my true passion! I was introduced to Equine Assisted Therapies at Freedom Hooves Therapeutic Riding Center in Wichita, Kansas. I was so moved by this amazing work I immediately became involved.
While volunteering at Freedom Hooves I was approached to participate in a Pilot Program working with the Breakthrough Club using the EAGALA model. After just one session I became a believer in the power of using horses to change lives.
One night while pondering how I could spread the word about Equine Assisted Therapies & Learning, I decided to write a children's book telling the story of how working with horses helps people of all ages. That's how the very first of a series of books was inspired with "George the Therapy Horse" as the main character.
George becomes a Therapy Horse and each book tells the story of his experiences and the wonderful people he meets and, ultimately, helps.
George is a bay American Quarter Horse gelding and has been my personal horse since 2002. He is good-natured and very intelligent. He has proven to be a very talented therapy horse.
