Saddled: How a Spirited Horse Reined Me In and Set Me Free
By Susan Richards
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
May 2010
240 pages

Susan Richards finally found her dream horse in a 3-year old red chestnut Morgan named Georgia. Then only five months after she brought her beautiful horse home, her marriage to an abusive alcoholic fell apart and Georgia became the pawn in their bitter divorce battle. During the year-long ordeal, Susan faced her own demons and quit drinking. Her commitment to giving Georgia the life she deserved helped her begin to live the life she, too, deserved.

Richards’ powerful story shows how the animals we love and care for are also a great source of strength and deliverance during the most challenging times. Her honest soul-searching provides a pathway for others to heal from a painful past and make their dreams come true.
