DE­SCRIBED as “a unique jour­ney into the realm of the horse”, Equine

Jour­neys gives an in­ter­est­ing in­sight into the many facets of eques­trian life in Great Bri­tain.

Its top­ics are in­cred­i­bly var­ied, with chap­ters fo­cus­ing on top riders such as John Whi­taker and Mary King, as well as pop­u­lar Bri­tish breeds, events such as Bad­minton, Olympia and the Grand Na­tional, plus The King’s Troop, Monty Roberts and Tat­ter­salls.

The book fo­cuses heav­ily on the rac­ing and blood­stock in­dus­tries, as well as polo, with a few event­ing and showjump­ing names dropped into the mix. I im­me­di­ately noted a lack of dres­sage rep­re­sen­ta­tion — although the sole dres­sage per­son­al­ity fea­tured is a wor­thy one in para world cham­pion So­phie Wells. For the av­er­age horse lover, Equine

Jour­neys pro­vides an en­joy­able, in­for­ma­tive dip-in read, em­pha­sis­ing the var­ied na­ture of Bri­tain’s horse in­dus­try and the im­pact it con­tin­ues to have. hud­son £35 iSbN 9780993595103
