If you follow the equestrian book reviews I write for Horse & Style Magazine, then you’ll know that I recently featured Players: A Game of Grit and Glory, by new author EH Humphreys. To read that review, please click here. But today, I’d like to welcome her to the Maryland Equestrian blog for an “Author[…]

Book Review: Kentucky Homes

I love a good coffee table book – who doesn’t? And I especially love ones about horses, home décor and design, and my beloved Kentucky. That makes Pieter Estersohn’s, Kentucky: Historic Houses and Horse Farms of Bluegrass Country, an instant hit. I received this book as a Christmas gift and didn’t hesitate to plunge right[…]

Recent Review on Amazon

I was over-the-moon excited recently to receive a new review on Amazon for my novel, Where the Bluegrass Grows! Not only was it a five-star review, but the reviewer sent me a sweet email too! I haven’t put much effort into marketing my book lately, but now that it’s the New Year and I have[…]

Book Review: A Portion for Foxes

I’m way behind with this review as I finished this one almost a year ago – yikes! A Portion for Foxes, by Jane McIlvaine McClary, was published in 1972, so there is definitely an ages-old feel to it, but that shouldn’t stop you for giving this one a chance. I learned of this book while[…]

Book Review: The Fortune Hunter

Earlier this fall I finished Daisy Goodwin’s The Fortune Hunter, and enjoyed it. It takes place in the nineteenth century English countryside among royalty, foxhunters, and the well-to-do.

Book Review: Portrait of a Rider

I’d been looking for Vicky Moon’s coffee table book, The Private Passion of Jackie Kennedy Onasis: Portrait of a Rider, for quite some time. It was always too expensive, but I was recently able to find one relatively cheap on ebay. (Others are now, finally, similarly priced on Amazon). Please believe me when I say[…]

Book Review: Finding Daylight

I may be a 30-something, but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy some excellent young adult literature because, let’s face it, we’re all still young at heart, right? Over the Labor Day weekend, I jumped into Mara Dabrishus’ horseracing novel, Finding Daylight, and couldn’t put it down. Young jockey, Georgie Quinn, and fierce filly, Sweet[…]

Book Review: The Essential Fergus

If you’re a horse person, then you’re familiar with Fergus, Jean Abernethy’s cartoon horse who embodies the “everyman’s horse” we’ve all known and loved. Fergus is silly, imperfect, and unpredictable, but he’s also adorable, charming, and a wonderful friend. The Essential Fergus takes a look at our favorite horse but also gives us a glimpse[…]

Book Review: Horses & Homes

I love a good coffee table book, and Horses & Homes by Jenifer Jordan is just that. It was a very quick and easy read and provided some interesting insights to decorating your favorite indoor and outdoor spaces. I believe Jenifer took the photos herself, and they are lovely. However, I would have liked more[…]
