Poise, class, confidence, fantastic thighs and an even better ass: these are the spoils of an equestrian lifestyle. And Margaret Fletcher has them all.
But then suddenly, she doesn’t. Broke and horseless for the first time in her pampered life, Margaret is lost in a sea of tangled hairnets until a cranky old horseman introduces her to the not-so-glamorous world of exercising young racehorses. Margaret knows she can jump a five foot fence with style. But can she gallop forty miles an hour on a two-year-old rocket launcher with sticky brakes?
Enter Emily Morris, a working class eventer who’s spent her whole life eating the dust of rich girls like Margaret. Now, charged with the task of turning this clueless Hunter Princess into a fully-functional Gallop Girl, Emily will have to teach her the basics of horsemanship from the ground up ― mud, manure and all. Can a former Hunter Princess and a scrappy kid from the wrong side of the racetrack team up to conquer the “Sport of Kings?”
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
Be careful where you read this book because you will laugh out loud! People thought I was a lunatic; maybe I should schedule lunch and cocktails with Mrs. Fletcher! I found this book so entertaining. The characterizations were spot on.
Best book set in horse show world in forever and I have read them all. At first I thought that I was going to be turned off with the first person dialogue that jumps all over the place but once I got caught up in the characters the book flowed. Can’t wait for the next installment. Kudos to the author. Great way to spend an afternoon.
Can’t wait for another book by this author. Absolutely loved this and couldn’t put it down. Thank goodness for blizzards because I was lucky enough to be able to have the time to sit and read it all in one day. Please write more!
I can’t believe this is a debut novel. It’s terrific. It’s over the top, and meant to be that way. But the issues it covers are true. I will most certainly be looking for more from this author. Her take on the horse world through her lens of humor really resonated with me, and I’ve ridden seriously for over 40 years. Can’t wait to see more.
This is the funnest, funniest book I have read in ages!!! The GM clinic was HILARIOUS! A great reminder that there are many highs and lows in the competitive horse world and not to take ourselves so seriously. Absolutely loved it and recommended highly!
