When she agrees to take on the care of one of the abused horses just rescued by the local RSPCA, a new chapter opens in Susan Richards' difficult life. She lost her mother at the age of five and was raised by uncaring relatives; married unhappily and divorced; and suffered from alcoholism. Susan already owns one mare and two geldings but it is with this rescued horse, Lay Me Down, that she forges a special, healing relationship that alters her life. Poignant and evocative, this is a book for anyone who has ever loved a horse or lost a loved one.

this book is my favorite book no doubt. Susan describes how loss and pain can make someone change someone and make them who they are. it also shows that love from someone can also change you. the story of Susan and Lay me down is truly a remarkable story that can change peoples perspectives on others, especially peoples perspectives of horses and animals

I did not think I would like this book as I usually do not read memoirs. But I must say, this is an excellent book about self-realizations and life. You will laugh, cry, get angry, and become entwined with both horse and owner. Truly worth the read.

You don't have to own a horse to appreciate the real life experiences shared in this book. If you have ever loved a pet, you will understand the wide range of emotions such a bond creates in an individual's life. You will laugh and you will cry.

“They say you can't escape your past, but I don't believe that. I believe you escape it every day, over and over again, always cognizant of the difference between past and present”
