Author Mark Neihart Hosts Debut Party for The Horse Angels
Sandy, Utah (June 16, 2014) – Just in time for the summer solstice, author and Premier Equestrian CEO Mark Neihart will be debuting his first work of fiction, The Horse Angels, at a book release party Saturday, June 21. This newly released equestrian saga details a woman’s journey to save the age-old relationship between human and horse.
Set to take place at the Premier Equestrian product testing facility from 7pm-10pm, The Horse Angels release party will feature a reading by Neihart, as well as a discussion on his inspiration for the story, characters, and why he decided to tell this story.
Neihart started writing his book in 2010, and originally it detailed the history of mankind and horses, the premise being that man progressed through the ages on the back of a horse. More of a documentary style read, Neihart took the advice of an editor to transform the story into a work of fiction, featuring fast paced action, romance, government corruption, and of course, lots of horses.
The central theme in The Horse Angels is the relationship between horse and man. “It’s what motivates many of the characters. A hundred and fifty years ago it was the horse pulling the cart. Today, we see the Chevy Suburban pulling the horse within the trailer. This is the perfect symbol of our collective love and appreciation of the horse as well as an apt symbol of our gratitude.”That ancient bond is the core of The Horse Angels, a story about an endangered herd of wild horses and the people sent to protect them.
“I hope readers will be entertained and taken away to a different place,” says Neihart. “I wanted to underscore how hurtful and damaging rough handling is to horses, and how a harmonious approach is mutually beneficial. Mostly, I hope readers come to have a deeper understanding of how remarkable the relationship can be between horses and people.”
Don’t miss this opportunity to hear straight from the author how a book came into being, and how he seamlessly drew upon his experiences with legendary horsemen and women like Walter Zettl, Pat Parelli, and Linda Parelli to bring The Horse Angels to life.
