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.

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.
