A fabulous read- buy this book!
on 27 October 2014
This is a fabulous book; by turns taking me back to my horse-mad childhood, then forward into feats of unthinkably crazy horsemanship this armchair rider can only marvel at. But this is no Clarkson on horseback. It's funny, engaging and at times horribly honest. The real heart of the book, though, is the sensitively evoked relationship between horse and man, ( they clearly adore each other) which is when the pace of the prose really takes off. Very unusual work from a male writer, and incredibly moving it is too. I cried, and I bet you will as well.
