«Off to the stable»

A  flight from reality or a sanctuary for charging?

by Marit Segbø 

In this book, I will explore why so many are drawn to horses and are spending hours and hours in the stable? Is it based on an escape from reality or is the reason deeper than we have trouble to really grasp the understanding of? What a horse means to a person can we first understand when the persons themselves tell their story. In «Off to the Stable», this is exactly what happens. By letting the voices of the ones who spend their time with horses combined with research, this book will be an explosion of insightful and inspiring stories on the human-horse interaction.

The special story

When we first let horses into our lives, they often get a significant role. What the role consists of and what it means to us, however, varies. Some keep the horse interest at a moderate level, while for others, horses are life. For some, the horses can be a short term diversion, while for others the horses can contribute to a long-awaited change in life. What horses mean to us is multifaceted, just as we are, and it can change as time goes by.

Most of us who have groomed our horse interest over time, or the ones who have had briefly encounters with horses, often have one particular episode that stands out in some way. One special episode that left traces. «Off to the Stable» is the book for those stories. Authentic stories that touch, delight and entertain. Insightful stories that help providing a new understanding of us as humans, the connection we get with horses and the importance of named connection. Those stories come from you.

A passion for life

Ever since I met a thoroughbred at the age of 10, horses have had a special place in my life. Actually it started earlier. Thelwell and all kinds of pony-books I could get hold on, ignited the fascination, but the real life frightening ponies and stout fjordhorses didn’t hook my passion like the thoroughbred did. 

Most of the people I have been talking to over the years, stick to their horse passion even though they might not pursue the active stable/horse life anymore, just like me. The connection, the fascination, the passion will always be there. I went from being hands-on in helping people by the way of horses to becoming a researcher who wants to explore the depth of human-horse interaction and share my findings. I believe there is more to this interaction than it gets credit for.
