BOOKS 

Miranda Velasquez wrote Riding Scared in 2017 and it immediately earned Amazon’s best seller status. Miranda is very proud of her first book but felt it could be even better so she revised it and created the second edition called Ride Free: From Fear to Fun. The second edition received a radical makeover with new content, a new front and back cover, new title, subtitle and added endorsements. Ride Free contains a “Foreword” written by Dr. Veronica Lac, owner of the HERD Institute which provides a good look at how Miranda’s work blends seamlessly with Equine Facilitated Learning and how that impacts the reader. 

Horses carry the wisdom of healing in their hearts and offer it to any humans who possess the humility to listen.

RIDE FREE:

From Fear to Fun: Release Your Fears, Reconnect to Your Horse, and Ride with Confidence

Miranda Velasquez wrote Riding Scared in 2017 and it immediately earned Amazon’s best seller status. Miranda is very proud of her first book but felt it could be even better so she revised it and created the second edition called Ride Free: From Fear to Fun. The second edition received a radical makeover with new content, a new front and back cover, new title, subtitle and added endorsements. Ride Free contains a “Foreword” written by Dr. Veronica Lac, owner of the HERD Institute which provides a good look at how Miranda’s work blends seamlessly with Equine Facilitated Learning and how that impacts the reader. Are you afraid to ride your horse? Have you been feeling disconnected from your horse and from yourself? Does fear get the best of you every time you go to saddle up?Do you jump out of your skin every time your horse sneezes or shakes? Do you wonder if you’ll ever be able to ride again? My book Ride Free: From Fear to Fun may be just what you need to Release Your Fears, Reconnect to Your Horse, and Ride with Confidence.

A must-read for all women not only horsewomen. I was hooked in the first several pages. The more I read, the more I wondered “How can she know exactly what I have had going on in my head? How can she know exactly what I have experienced?” This book will be one that I will re-read several times as I do Women Who Run with the Wolves. Miranda guides you back to reclaim the powerful woman you were born to be if you have forgotten or if you have not claimed your birthright. Thank you, Miranda, for reminding me who I was and who I am!

Riding Scared:

A Spiritual Guide to Reconnecting with Yourself and Your Horse 

Have you forgotten what winning with your horse feels like? Do you dream of having a deep beautiful relationship with your horse? Do you wish you could ride fearlessly again? Did you have a fall or traumatic event that has left you afraid to ride? Are you tired of people asking you, “Why don’t you ride your horse?”, “Why aren’t you winning your events anymore?” or even worse, do people tell you to sell your horse because you’re not riding him/her? If you are answering yes to these questions then Riding Scared is your answer. There is a way to address your fears that do not include more training for your already trained horse or pushing yourself to just get back on and get over it. Anyone who tells you that has never been where you are. If you want to be comfortable in your saddle and not terrified every time your horse sneezes or perks up his ears you CAN do it! There is no reason to rush, there is no reason to sell your horse and there is no reason to feel ashamed or guilty. You have everything you need within you to beat your fears and ride confidently or compete successfully again. Let’s get collected! In this book you’ll discover a nine-step program on: – How to identify the fears holding you back and how those fears got there. – How to keep those fears out of your way for good and the tools you use to combat them. – How to forgive yourself and let go of feeling ashamed or guilty. – How to use your God-given gifts to find a deeper connection to yourself and your horse. – How to change your mindset to release your fears around your horse, riding, and competing. – How to use your intuition, visualize your perfect ride and use nature to your advantage. Miranda Velasquez is very familiar with the fears associated with getting back on your horse after a traumatic event. She has been confidently back in the saddle after using these methods herself for the last ten years. She has designed this book to be like a combo of going to a Buck Brannaman or Karen Rohlf clinic mixed with Gabrielle Bernstein’s book “The Universe Has Your Back”.
