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[…]

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: 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.

Book Review: Hannah Hooton’s Equestrian Romance

Sometimes I’m in the mood for some nice easy reading, and equestrian author, Hannah Hooton’s, romance novels provide just that. She has published six (I believe) equestrian romances, and I have had the pleasure of reading two of them (so far)! About two years ago, I read At Long Odds, which is a stand-alone novel.[…]

Book Review: The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls

Earlier this summer I finished Anton DiSclafani’s debut novel, The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls. Other than not knowing how to pronounce the title, and a little bit of weirdness toward the end, this book was an absolute page-turner. When we meet Thea Atwell, she is being dropped off at Yonahlossee by her father. We[…]
