book coverGrowing up in a small Maine town, Chris had never ridden a horse. Never even touched one.  But on one fateful night when he thought he had lost everything, he met two horses and looked into their eyes, and his life was changed forever. It inspired him to leave everything behind and go in search of his newfound connection to horses. His journey took him to the mountains of Colorado, the Hollywood Hills of California, and to the wild borderlands of Southern Arizona. And through the many connections he made with the amazing horses he met, Chris was guided to a greater wisdom about not only himself, but about life as well.

Told in an engaging style that sets the reader among the horses, people and great landscapes of the American West, Land of the Horses entertains and inspires. It is a story that is in all of us and shows we are all capable of creating the life we truly want to live.

"A smooth and engaging read, Land of the Horses moves along at a comfortable pace, is tied together with engaging anecdotes and Lombard's reflections, and puts into words some of the more abstract concepts of equine philosophy and horsemanship - an entertaining story and worthy read for beginner and experienced equestrians alike.”

Natural Horse Magazine
