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
