Always Been A Fan Of This Author
I have loved every book I have read by this writer. All her books are about horses(of course). Aside from the eventing series, this may be my favorite so far.
A Young Woman With A Purpose
Jenny was born and raised in Ocala, Florida. The daughter of two racehorse trainers on a huge farm their family owns. Jenny spent her whole life immersed in horseracing and the thoroughbred industry. After attending college in NYC, Jenny starts to feel as if NYC is where she really belongs.
She has a degree in journalism and her mission is to write about the horse racing industry in a way that makes equestrians in other disciplines appreciate their likeness. Jenny wants to enlighten the horsey public on all the good people that are involved in the horse racing world. Her plan is to write stories that highlight this and sort of bridge the gap that seems to be between the horse racing world and the Sporthorse world.
Jenny finds that her plans aren’t coming as easily as she has hoped for. Full Stride, the blog she started with her two friends after college was off to a rocky start. The things she wanted to report about were not what her editor had in mind, leading to constant frustration. Not to mention Jenny beginning to get the feeling that she is confused about where she belongs.
Sometimes NYC feels like home, other times she longs for her early morning days at the track with her family’s racehorses.
As Jenny continues on her mission of writing about racing in a way that the average horse person can understand and become interested in, she discovers that are more horses in New York than she ever knew.
She meets many horses and human characters as she pursues her mission of connecting the racing community with the non-racing community. This makes for a rich and interesting cast of characters!
A Book For Thoroughbred Lovers… Well, All Horse Lovers!
I don’t know about you but I’m thoroughbred crazy. I’m just as interested in them when they are racing, as when they are retired from racing. To me, they are just the most beautiful horses on earth.
Currently, racehorses and what becomes of retired racehorses is a pretty big topic in the equestrian community. Following that trend, this book delves into how important the connection between the horse racing world and the non-racing world is. If each world has a stronger understanding of the other it will only benefit the horses that we all love so much!
