About the author

Edith B. Wislocki

This book is a memoir about a woman who loved to work but was unhappy with her work life. When she was forty-five in 1989 she up and changed everything to spend the rest of her life doing what she wanted to do - being outside with dogs and horses while pursuing a meaningful and rewarding career.

She and a neighborhood friend joined together and created a nonprofit: Greenlock Therapeutic Riding Center, Inc. in Rehoboth, MA. This book takes a look at all the improbable stories that took place behind the scenes of this remarkable organization. It is a funny, whimsical, poignant and an informative read involving horses, dogs, and other animals as they relate to quirky kids with odd abilities and disabilities.

This is her first and only book which she wrote at the age of seventy seven. She wrote the entire book on her IPhone while sitting outside at her farm where she, her golden retrievers and Greenlock reside.
