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.  

In 2009 I began my EAGALA certification training as an Equine Specialist and have co-facilitated in Equine Assisted Therapies & Learning.  Since then I have also had training in Faith Based Equine Assisted Philosophy and Horses Healing Grief.  I am blessed to be a part of this amazing and powerful work.

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.
