Saddled: How a Spirited Horse Reined Me In and Set Me Free

Saddled: How a Spirited Horse Reined Me In and Set Me Free - Susan Richards A return visit with Susan Richards in her new book, Saddled, due in May. A relentlessly honest memoir of her journey out of alcoholism, her painful childhood, and the life vest that she grabbed to pull her out of her pain, a horse named Georgia. Not at all dark or self-indulgent amidst all this dysfunction, but a bracingly authentic memoir of the pivotal points of her life. Anyone who's ever known an alcoholic, loved a horse, or experienced the pain of an unhappy childhood can relate to her story and cheer her on, as she rises up against indeterminable odds to find peace.
