Lively account of a young life,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: My Animals and Other Family (Kindle Edition)
Knowing nothing of the horse racing world, I bought this book as I am always impressed by the professionalism of Clare Balding, as witnessed during the recent Olympics and Paralympics. I was immediately transported into her world of horses and dogs, both of which she has loved all her life. Growing up with a race horse training father, it seems, perhaps, natural that Clare should eventually be a jockey, but it was her spirit and determination that took her to a Championship triumph, after a rather 'difficult' childhood.
This book is a thoroughly entertaining read, which I enjoyed very much.
My only gripe is that in the Kindle version, the last chapter was repeated!!
