Horse lover shares personal experiences of her herd: Life-changing insights, lessons abound in author’s story about ‘My American Horse Family’

LANCASTER, N. H. – Karin Matey credits her love for horses and the adventures, fun and personal growth that have stemmed from that love in “My American Horse Family” (published by AuthorHouse). In her book, Matey takes readers on an adventure she has shared with her very own “horse herd.”

The learning from, nurturing, and being nurtured by the six horses that live in their farm shows readers that the author and her horses are a family, or from the horses’ point of view, a herd. The book tells the adventures of their coming together and overcoming many challenges in the process.

Matey has raised and trained four young horses, from foal to championship. She has over 15 years of horse experience and continues to strive for excellence in classical horsemanship. She passes her knowledge on to her riding students, with the firm belief that the rider and horse should always have fun.

“The experiences I relate in my book have been profound and life changing for me,” Matey shares. “It’s the purpose of my book, by telling my story in detail, the reader may acquire a realistic picture of what it’s like having horses, especially if they are like me, a newcomer to the horse world.”

About the Author: When Karin Matey was a child, she helped on the family farm and dreamed that someday she would become an accomplished dressage rider. Her dream came true when Matey and her family moved to a farm in northern New Hampshire, where she began to raise and train her own horses. Born in West Germany, Matey moved to the United States as a young woman and earned a business management degree from Newbury College in Boston, Massachusetts. She taught martial arts for over 20 years and is a fifth degree black belt. She is a graduate of Elizabeth Grady School of Esthetics in Boston as well.

My American Horse Family musical CD

My American Horse Family (book summary):
Who would have imagined that one horse would change the course of my life forever? A horse’s spirit called out for help and in a mysterious way, I was the one that heard her weary spirit’s call. Today I am so thankful that I kept my promise to never give up on my Krizta, not just for her sake, but for my own. Krizta was the first member of my American Horse Family. Krizta taught me that a horse forms the rider. She became my greatest teacher. After Krizta retired, she and Cairo, the next horse in the family, took on the responsibility of raising four young foals, Misty, Keanu, Sebastian, and Hannover. We’ve ridden the country roads and learned the art of dressage together. This book is the story of the living with, learning from, nurturing and being nurtured by the six horses in our family on our farm. If you are a horse person already, I think you will be entertained by my story. If you’ve ever thought of having a horse or horses, I hope my story will inspire you to do it.
