Book Summary

Who would be stupid enough to open and run a riding school when they are terrified of horses, can't ride, without insurance or capital, and with not the faintest idea of how to care for horses. Add to that, two of the four horses are not fit for the knacker's yard. Yes, that's exactly what I did - like so many of my adventures I 'fell' into this one as well with hilarious results.


Can't wait for book 2. I highly recommend this book and all her other books!

Lucinda gives us a brief, enticing glimpse into her life in Africa in the 1980s, where horses become an accidental part of her life.

Lucinda writes with a quick sense of humor. She has a great way of describing what happens. I enjoyed her book.
