    Read each chapter in this funny, observant and well-written book about the horse world and horse people, laugh (at yourself and them), and then go out to the barn to feed your horse a handful or two of oats….. just because, and in thanks!

    Just in case you ever thought the world of horses and their riders was stuffy and predictable, this book will change your mind. Jec Ballou, who has ridden and trained horses literally throughout the world, paints an affectionate and hilarious depiction of that world and the people in it. Each of the 40 descriptive pieces is utterly unique, and where as humor is the dominant mood, Jec’s lifelong love of horses shines through everything. I just loved the book—and I can guarantee you’ll never read another horse book remotely like this one!

    Super fun. I often give this book as a gift to horse friends. The chapters are short so it was fun to read one a night.
