Ginger Gaffney - Half Broke

A Look at How Horses & Humans Seek Relationships to Survive, a Memoir Book Talk & Signing

Ginger Gaffney, a top-ranked horse trainer and author, will discuss and sign Half Broke ($25.95 W. W. Norton & Company), a gorgeous and life-affirming memoir that offers profound insight into the fascinating ways both horses and humans seek relationships to survive. At the start of this remarkable story, Gaffney answers a call to help retrain the troubled horses at an alternative prison ranch in New Mexico, a facility run entirely by the prisoners. With deep insight into how animals and humans communicate, she walks us through her struggle to train the untrainable. Gaffney peels away the layers of her own story--a solitary childhood, painful introversion, and a transformative connection with her first horse--and she, too, learns to trust people as much as she trusts horses.

Resonant and beautifully written, Half Broke tears at the heart of what it takes to find wholeness after years of trauma and addiction and offers profound insight on how working with animals can satisfy our universal need for connection.
