For anyone who has ever wondered how teenage riders in the 1970s stayed alive despite hair-raising lessons and the absence of health and safety; about riding attire fashioned without stretch fabrics; how a love of horses makes for female empowerment and ideas on being an equestrian dominatrix; how not to clean tack, whether happy hackers need a re-boot and why riding bareback is not a good idea (and riding without a bridle even worse), this book will provide the answers.
Included are equestrian adventures throughout the ’80s and ’90s, riding holidays at home and abroad, an explanation of why going posh isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, and tales of delightful donkeys and a small bay mule who captured the author’s heart. There are highs, there are lows, but always there are laughs. Packed with surprises on every page this is an equestrian memoir like no other – a horsy life you couldn’t make up!
