About the Author

Chris Lombard helps people and their horses connect with each other. There is challenge, joy, and much opportunity for growth when working with a horse, and Lombard's focus is to help people get a feel for their own individual path in that journey. Lombard and his horse Rocky have been featured at many expos, fairs, and horse shows. Lombard is also the author of The Horses In Our Stars: A Story of Life, Love, and the Journey Within, an account of how connecting with horses can help us to understand the love and fear in our lives, which has led him to present at schools, libraries, and motivational speaking events. His essays on nature and horsemanship have appeared in many magazines. Lombard currently lives in Maine and continues to be inspired by horses, what they show us, and the journey we take with them. You can learn more about him at www.ChrisLombard.com.


"A well written and heartfelt
book that demonstrates the positive and often life changing promise that horses
have to offer--when we
let them." --Mark Rashid, author of Journey to Softness, Finding
the Missed Path, and Horses Never Lie"This book gave me
pause. I was absorbed in Chris Lombard's words of wisdom about being with and
connecting with the horse. His thoughts on horses and life resonate truth.
They are simple, yet profound. It made me want to run out to my barn to work
with a small and troubled horse that is new to my farm and seems angry at
the world. I slowed down with him and started seeing a shift and a softer eye. Land
of the Horses is definitely worth the read!" --Cindy Meehl, Cedar
Creek Media, Director and Producer of Buck, 7 Clinics with Buck
, and The Dog Doc, and Executive Producer of Rewind, The
River and the Wall, For the Birds, Unbranded
, Trapped, and Dogs
on the Inside
"This book needs to be read.
I am changed by it. It has a quietly powerful way of bringing home the
connection between the human and the horse." --Joe
Camp, author of The Soul of a Horse"I love linear timeline books such as this...narratives
that take you on an emotional and physical journey while periodically dropping
you into very different worlds along the way. Chris Lombard's story is told
with an adventure essence that kept me connected the entire time--from teaching
children in a school to guiding night rides in Los Angeles to working with
dudes in Arizona. It's a story of adventure steeped with the discovery of
finding oneself--and the horse serving as the catalyst for that discovery." --Bud
Force, Co-Director, Producer, and Director of Photography for the feature
film Cowboys: A Documentary Portrait "Evocatively written, Land of the Horses interweaves the author's
growing understanding of horses and how we connect with them with his deeply
personal experiences, bringing to life a young man's transformation
alongside the horses, people, and dramatic landscapes of the American West.
Healing heartbreak, falling and getting back on, searching for
something true--this is a story that is in all of us." --Northwest
Horse Source"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
"Land of the Horses takes
you for an epic ride. It is an inspiring story of a man's journey through the
American West, meeting wise horses and mythic cowboys along the way, and coming
to a stirring finish at the end." --Open Fences Magazine
