Reviews

"This next book for horse lovers is for the travelers and the dreamers. Equestrian Life from Riding Houses to Country Estates is about high-style elegance and the horse-centric lifestyle in England, Scotland and Ireland. I’ve ridden horses all over Ireland and have written about where to go horseback riding in London It’s only a matter of time before I go horseback riding in Scotland. Until then, I have 240 pages and 172 gorgeous color photos of lavish country life on the British Isles to keep me dreaming about horses." —Writing Horseback
