This riveting memoir follows professional horse trainer Ginger Gaffney's year-long odyssey to train a herd of neglected horses at an alternative prison ranch in New Mexico. Working with her is a small team of ranch "residents," men and women who are each uniquely broken by addiction and incarceration. Gaffney forms a bond with them as profound as the kinship and trust the residents discover among the troubled horses. Through these unforgettable characters--both animal and human--Half Broke tells a new kind of recovery story and speaks to the life-affirming joy of finding a sense of belonging.
