German Olympian Isabell Werth is one of the most successful horsewomen in the world. In Four Legs Move My Soul Werth collaborates with accomplished sports journalist, Evi Simeoni, who has witnessed and written about her career from the very beginning, to tell her life story.

With six Olympic gold medals and scores of championship titles to her name, few riders are her equal on paper. But an equestrian’s success is wholly dependent on the relationship she has with her athletic partner—her horse—and Werth’s astounding accomplishments would not have been possible without her unique approach to working with the animals she’s loved since childhood. Even as a little girl, growing up on a farm on the Lower Rhine, it was clear that Werth possessed an extraordinary gift for empathizing with horses and foreseeing how they were likely to react in certain situations. This insight gave her a special ability as a rider and trainer.

In Four Legs Move My Soul, readers get the inside scoop when it comes to Werth’s accomplishments—and her failures. They’ll hear her personal thoughts regarding some of the biggest controversies to rock the dressage world: Rollkur and Totilas. Perhaps most importantly, they’ll learn about each of the sensitive and talented horses that has impacted Werth’s life, including Gigolo, Satchmo and Bella Rose.

There is a popular saying in the riding community: “Two legs move our body, four legs move our soul.” It is this sentiment that Werth feels perhaps best defines her. Paperback; 336 pages.
