“I have enjoyed all of Josie‚Äôs books so much. She is an amazing author and I feel like I can imagine being on every ride! The photos are great and the content is perfect. Someday I will go on a ride with her and who knows, maybe be in one of her stories too!! Keep up the good work and I’m happy that you get to follow your dreams and most of all your passion.”

“Josie Rusho’s trail books are well-written invitations to explore the Northwest by horseback. You can feel her excitement of riding in the backcountry as she accurately describes the trails and places to camp with horses. She has personally ridden almost all the trails described, and trusted friends have written about the very few she hasn’t. Josie carefully researches all the areas in her books, and has the Forest Service review her books for accuracy. Josie also includes interesting and fun anecdotes about her trips, many useful tips, plus delicious camp recipes. Her books cover wilderness rides in deep forests to desert terrain —whatever your heart and spirit may desire. They have been my go-to books for many wonderful adventures in our beautiful Northwest.”

“Josie Rusho has written three trail riding books and has co-written two others with Rene Ogan. They are wonderfully detailed and accurate books of the riding tails of the Northwest. The time and work on these books show how much Josie cares about sharing her untamed joy of riding.”
