The Books

Nicole and Adam are authors of two books, Whispering Back (2003) and Born To Whisper (2009). Perhaps best described as parts I and II of an autobiography with horses, they document the story of how we became some of the first people in the UK to work using Monty Roberts’ Join Up technique, and many of the extraordinary horses and people we have worked with.

Born To Whisper

An Autobiography with Horses, part II.

After meeting Monty Roberts in 1996, Nicole Golding and Adam Goodfellow were among the first people in the UK to become ‘horse whisperers’.

Born to Whisper is the much-awaited sequel to their first bookWhispering Back, they chart the highs and lows of working in one of the world’s most romantic professions, as they help people to make sense of their horses‘ behaviour. From wild, untouchable horses, to those who violently attack anyone who comes within striking distance, they have seen it all.

Yet their story goes far beyond tales of remedial horses. From surfing to rock music, from the Cotswolds to Hawaii, from tragedy to the joy of giving birth – in a stable, no less – this book is a remarkable chronicle, taking the reader on a voyage that helps make sense of the contradictions of modern life.

Whispering Back

After a chance meeting with Monty RobertsNicole Golding and Adam Goodfellow gave up their livelihoods to pursue their dream of becoming horse whisperers.

At their beautiful stables in the Cotswolds, they spend time nurturing badly treated horses. They have transformed wild, uncared for beasts into placid, endearing horses. Over the years they have fallen in love with the deep brown eyes of many an injured pony and have built strong relationships with their owners too.

Now they welcome you into their unique world, full of charming, eccentric tales where an engaging cast of characters are brought together in the heart of the English countryside.
