Helping Hooves
is a triumph of American creativity and innovation and a compelling story that you don't want to miss.

In a world where size and power is respected, it’s the little things that capture your hearts and mind. After a century of neglect, horses are now being re-introduced into our society in a remarkable and creative way.

Filled with humor and drama, Janet Burleson shares her remarkable story of training midget ponies to guide the blind.

Both entertaining and educational, Janet Burleson tells how she overcame ridicule and prejudice, using her decades of professional horse training to prove that the intelligence of horses could be harnessed for the benefit of mankind.


For the first-time ever, after great demand, noted horse whisperer Janet Burleson shares the amazing Guide Horse training story. With many lives depending on her work, learn how and why Janet developed the training program to prepare the horses for the important task of keeping their blind companions safe. Follow the intricate steps required to train tiny ponies to ride escalators and safely guide the blind through crowded urban traffic. Study the detailed photographs illustrating the milestones of the Guide Horse training process.

Burleson explains how to overcome the challenges of taking a horse on a flight in the passenger cabin of a commercial airliner including how to reliably housebreak a horse.

This is an entertaining and informative book that will leave the reader with a greater understanding of the working bond between horse and human.

The remarkable story has captured the hearts and minds of people everywhere and has been featured in TIME, Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal, 20/20 and People Magazine.
