If you love books, this is the perfect place for you. Once a month, Heather, Ute, and sometimes Krystal, will talk about their favorite horsey book. In today’s episode of the EQA Book Club, Ute is talking with Claire Eckhard about her recently published book Race Against Time, a book about a girl, a pony and their race against time in the toughest 100-miles endurance race in the world, the Tevis Cup.

Race Against Time by Claire Eckhard
The true story of a girl and a pony, who found each other and formed a bond. Flash, a Hackney pony, small and feral, and Kyla Law, a young girl, bullied by her peers, with a big heart and the guts to hang on against all odds. This unlikely pair persists through all difficulties and finally finds their happiness and fulfilment in endurance riding. It is a race against time as Kyla is constantly getting older and bigger and Flash is just what he is, a pony.
