"The Magic is not to Whisper to a Horse, but to Listen..."
Close your eyes, inhale deeply, listen intently, and bask in the ambiance of the
smell of hay, the sound of a horse’s nicker, and the warmth that comes to your
heart when in the presence of our spiritual cousins, the Horse.

This site is the virtual barn, the counter part to the physical barn where author
R.T. Fitch listens, contemplates, and shares the teachings of those who cannot
speak for themselves.

The fact is, you can learn a lot from a horse.
Whether or not you are a fan of horses, these
vignettes, of which there are thirty in all, celebrate
the very best breeds of human and horse. Through
tales of life, death, and spirituality, these deeply
felt and beautifully wrought tales prove to be a
superb collection of horse-related experiences.
From the poetic symmetry of “I Thought It Was
the Right Thing To Do” to the fierce loyalty of
“She Stole My Heart” and “Whispers in the
Night,” the author does something incredibly
special with language and human’s relationships
with the equine family.  He rides at breakneck
speed to the place where each of us wants to learn
about ourselves. He takes his readers to a tender
spot where he has learned to listen to the soft
nickering voice of a horse. A must-read for anyone
who has ever desired to explore his or her inner
self, here is destiny and passion, fortitude and

May the "Force of the Horse" be with You
Dramatic and thought provoking, Straight from the Horse’s Heart: A Spiritual Ride through Love,
Loss, and Hope
by new author R.T. Fitch is an emotional journey that helps readers slip back into the
saddle of self-reliance and moral conviction.
In the spirit of Dian Fossey, R.T. Fitch touches on a highly
emotional and controversial subject in a way that few have
dared.  When the masses share his commitment to personally
shoulder the responsibility of animal welfare, the horse will be
in a much better place.”
