Getting Along with Rusty

Coming soon!

My memoir, Getting Along with Rusty: Horses, Healing, and Therapeutic Riding, will be published this year.

Here’s what’s being said:

Sharing one’s personal experiences of growth and reflection is such an important part of our healing journey. In a very powerful and accessible way, Lasell does just this as a human being, a trauma practitioner, and an equine therapist in Getting Along with Rusty. I encourage others to read her story as part of their healing.

Getting Along with Rusty is a must read by anyone who has ever experienced Developmental Trauma or felt themselves resistant to the advice of their parents or others. Lasell weaves a compelling story about her personal journey through healing, and how a most unexpected healing partner, Rusty, taught her about love and safety on the deepest levels. Rusty opens all our eyes to the probability of healing through a relationship of love and support through connecting with equines to shed the layers of trauma we acquire during our life. This book is more than a good read; it has the potential to change lives.

Everyone working with horses and therapy needs to read Getting Along with Rusty, really. But it is also for anyone who understands the gifts inherent in the human/horse relationship and how they help us grow into fully-formed humans. Lasell shares with honesty and clarity her personal journey of learning through horses, and along the way offers insight and guidance on how we can help the horses we love be happier and healthier. Many of us feel the dissonance between our love for these amazing creatures and how it is considered normal for us to dominate and exploit them. Lasell offers a different point of view, and an opportunity to work towards a more equitable relationship. It starts with us.
