In ‘Bruja’ Morag encapsulates the life of one horse and its profoundly moving effect on all who knew her.

 

   Morag Higgins  

Morag Higgins has been riding for over thirty five years and teaching for almost three decades. She has had the privilege to have known and worked with many, many horses in her career having participated in several disciplines such as jumping, dressage, one-day eventing, showing and western riding.
 

Traditionally trained, Morag was herself a very traditional trainer and rider producing many horses to top level in a variety of disciplines, but through it all she was always seeking more.  She began to study with the Intelligent Horsemanship Association in 1999. After qualification she was made the Recommended Associate for Scotland in 2002 and continued in this role for four years.
 

In 2005 Morag had the good fortune to ride on a clinic with top American trainer Mark Rashid. A fellow Martial Artist, she instantly understood his ethos and he has been the real inspiration that guided her down the path leading to the development of the Equido Training system. One of the first Natural Horsemanship systems to be recognized as a National Qualification.
 

Morag trains from her yard Ross Dhu Equestrian in Quarter, Larkhall, Scotland and continues to grow and develop as a Natural Horsewoman and Trainer. 

  

“Anyone who has spent time around horses will be moved by this account. Any young girl who has yearned for a horse of her own will be inspired. It will touch the hearts of all who read it.”

Sue Armstrong MA VetMB VetMFHom CertIAVH MRCVS RSHom

 

"An emotionally descriptive account of the horses’ ability to teach, the altruistic companionship they give and commitment they so rightly demand."

Alan James Mueller MRCVS


  "
I want to tell you how much I enjoyed it and how so much of what you said was like my own experience with horses, from when I wished for one every time I blew out my birthday candles to the day I finally got my own horse and then the heartbreak of losing my soul mate when I had to have her put down. Thank you for your story - it really touched my heart and conveyed so well the love and partnership between a girl and her horse."

Elaine Hutchinson

  "Morag has excelled in sharing her emotional highs and lows as owner and partner of the remarkable Bruja. It reminded me of my own equine adventures as a youth and that horses continue to change my life"

Ailsa Powers Equestrian Yard Manager

 

"I am reading the book at present and it is most enjoyable. Bruja sounded a marvellous horse and I can understand how you felt about her because this is just how I feel about Hannah"

Sally Peers Horse Owner
