He was the perfect horse, it was said, "the horse God built." Most of us know the legend of Secretariat, the tall, handsome chestnut racehorse whose string of honors runs long and rich: the only two-year-old ever to win Horse of the Year, in 1972; winner in 1973 of the Triple Crown, his times in all three races still unsurpassed; featured on the cover of Time, Newsweek, and Sports Illustrated; the only horse listed on ESPN's top fifty athletes of the twentieth century (ahead of Mickey Mantle). His final race at Toronto's Woodbine Racetrack is a touchstone memory for horse lovers everywhere. Yet while Secretariat will be remembered forever, one man, Eddie "Shorty" Sweat, who was pivotal to the great horse's success, has been all but forgotten---until now. In The Horse God Built, bestselling equestrian writer Lawrence Scanlan has written a tribute to an exceptional man that is also a backroads journey to a corner of the racing world rarely visited. As a young black man growing up in South Carolina, Eddie Sweat struggled at several occupations before settling on the job he was born for---groom to North America's finest racehorses. As Secretariat's groom, loyal friend, and protector, Eddie understood the horse far better than anyone else. A wildly generous man who could read a horse with his eyes, he shared in little of the financial success or glamour of Secretariat's wins on the track, but won the heart of Big Red with his soft words and relentless devotion. In Scanlan's rich narrative, we get a groom's-eye view of the racing world and the vantage of a man who spent every possible moment with the horse he loved, yet who often basked in the horse's glory from the sidelines. More than anything else, The Horse God Built is a moving portrait of the powerful bond between human and horse.
This is a book about the work I have been doing with horses over the last thirteen years. I believe that the healing work I do with horses is a gift, it comes naturally. I have been asked so many times to explain how this kind of communication, this kind of healing works: Can anyone do this? Are you talking to the horse? Are you a horse whisperer? Are you a shaman? So the idea grew of writing a book that would be entertaining, and informing, which would have general appeal: The case histories I offer in this book are unembellished. That's how they happened! In the book I make mention of a belief I hold, which is that a healing can occur in the simplest way: simply by recognizing the suffering of another living being, and just for a moment, sharing that suffering... My role is to simply witness the unfolding of that memory, that trauma. This is often enough to effect healing, releasing of what has been held inside, and what is holding back that creature of God from fully enjoying its life.

My Horses, My Healers begins as a childhood drama of sexual abuse in the life of the author, and through the healing power of interacting with horses, Shelley Rosenberg transforms her experience into a protocol for self-healing through the willingness to be with the horse. For riders of all ages, for anyone who has experienced alienation from their own human kind in their days, for anyone who loves horses—this book resonates with the good that can come from watching horses and humans interact and teach one another about the language of direct communication, feelings, and healing through truthful speaking of our emotions.
