Firstly, I'd like to say that I NEVER do reviews but I felt I had to for this book.
As a 'first time' horse owner since August 2022 the equestrian world has always filled me with dread - I've been around horses since I was little (now in my 30s) but have always found it odd we plonk these big, majestic animals into tiny square paddocks with limited grazing for 98% of their day but its seen to be normal just because it's been done for so long. The same goes for shoeing horses.. It's bizarre!
I knew I wanted to go against the grain and do things MY way with my horses regardless of how people viewed me or the opinions they had on how I managed them - with one native rare breed Eriskay, one Welsh Sec A rising 2yo and an 8mo heavyweight cob foal I knew I had my work cut out managing VERY good doers. I was committed to doing everything I could to ensure the way I kept them suited THEM first and foremost.
This book is a breath of fresh air. Everything in it makes perfect sense, it just clicks. It's EXACTLY what I'm aiming for, for my own herd. Amy has written it from the heart, mistakes and all, which makes me love it all the more.
The hints, tips and tricks are excellent for newbies installing their first track - like me!
I bought this book and had read it within 24 hours, three days later I had planned out my track and ordered my supplies, using the book as my bible.
You should be very proud Amy, this book will change the world for so many horses stuck in a boring, repetitive and restricted routine 🙌
