Share your story here!

When it comes to horses, we all start with a dream and undoubtedly have a story or two along our journey with a horse that inspired us as our muse, teacher, healer, friend or partner. Those stories help others along the path of connecting with a horse, so if you’d like to share your story:

  1. Leave your name and email (email won’t be visible to public) in the comment form below with a short description of your story to let me know you’re interested.
  2. If you haven’t already gotten on our email list, please enter your name and email in the sign-up box on the right. This will keep you in the story loop and will give me your email to follow up with you to get your story and art on the site!

And don’t worry, if writing’s not your thing, I’m happy to set up a short call and interview you. Or, you can record your story here for free. Add a photo if you want and I’ll follow up to get the link to your recording. If you write, just write like you talk. I will edit and add supporting imagery as needed. Talk or write about what inspires you most about your horse or what you had to learn or overcome to make your connection better. If you have art or images you’ve created that support your story, that’s fantastic!

Here’s my dream: If enough people share enough stories with enough other people about how horses have enriched their lives, more people and their horses will benefit, and society will eventually raise the inherent value it places on horses. I want to be able to refer all legislators to this site who are confronted with making decisions affecting horses’ lives, but who might not have any idea of the depth and breadth of benefits horses bring to society.

One day, the terms “unwanted” and “slaughter” will never again be associated with a horse. If growing an awareness in society about the intelligence of dolphins succeeded in raising their value from acceptable collateral damage in the fishing industry to protected species with their own label on tuna cans, horse lovers can figure out a way to keep horses out of slaughterhouses.

This site is my contribution to such an awareness campaign.

Given that’s the goal, when you submit your story to ArtofEquus.com, please know the intention is for the whole world to see it and share it. So please include a byline about yourself with links to where someone can buy your art online. Watermarks across the bottom are fine, please don’t use names of others in your stories and be sure you have model releases for anyone in your photos. There’s a horse and his/her person who could benefit by your story, so please be a hero today!

Thank you so much for your support!

  1. Dear Michelle

    I was overwhelmed to receive your invitation to share a story of how Zulu became my teacher. He was a very special horse with a very big heart, and what He taught me I am sure will inspire others on their journey with their equine friend. I only hope I can honor Zulu for all He stood for.

    I look forward to hearing from you and would just like to add, your site is beautiful.

    Many Blessings

    Michele Jane


  2. As the saying goes “Horses are not my whole life, horses make me whole”…my novel TRUE is about the amazing connection between horses and humans..about how we rescue each other and love through these beloved beasts..free on kindle Dec. 29


  3. My name is Kristine and I have loved horses from childhood. They absolutely fascinate me. For two years, I lived in Ohio close to Amish communities and after meeting a few of the Belgians, I knew this “type” of horse was for me. At 52 years old, I found my first horse. His name is Sirrus, a Clydesdale Cross, and weighs well over 1300 lbs! He is a rescue from a PMU farm in Canada and came with many challenges…


    • Hi Kristine, thanks for sharing your story. Would love to post it! So glad you were able to give Sirrus a forever home! I abbreviated the story in your comment and will post it as soon as you can send me one of your great photos of Sirrus!

  5. Thank you for providing this forum as an opportunity to share my life,art and spiritual evolution and their connection to my association with horses.
    I have felt that I should provide more written commentary on my art and perhaps this is the motivation to get me started. The story I would like to share will probably have a somewhat spiritual aspect to it connecting the evolution of human consciousness metaphorically with the essence, presence and being of horses. Your website is beautifully motivated toward the care and appreciation of horses and I applaud you for that.


    • Thank you, Bill! I love how you capture the essence of the equine spirit with your Chinese brush style and look forward to reading your story sharing it on the site!

    • Learning how you listen to horses and how what you heard or felt actually influenced specific paintings shown in the story would be fascinating, Susan! I’ll give you a call!


  7. Hi Michelle. Would you be interested in an article I wrote “Gods Horses”. Just thought it might give a bit of an insight into my approach to horses and the world of EAL.
    Thanks.. Ross

  11. My horses have inspired me to dig deeper, to check myself at the gate, so see them in a spiritual light.

    I have recently begun working with a friend who is a 3rd generation medium. We have put together a workshop – Rihannon Circle – that we will host once a month. It focuses on the unseen world of horses. We did our first one yesterday and I could not believe how my horses worked with 12 people. Fully engaged and fully participating and in their element. I have found what it is they love to do. They helped the group work through blocks through a simple guided meditation. Brought loads of information forward and helped me work on my biggest fear – talking to a group. Anyway, would love to share more. All my love Lindsea and herd. xxx


    • I’m eager to hear more about what your workshop turned up around the unseen world of horses. I share your fear of talking to a group, so I’m all ears how that shift happened for you.
