Susannah Sarah Bowes-Lyon (1920-2002) is best known for her Horsemanship as it is Today. This facsimile of her own production was reprinted many times, and appeared again in the 1970s in another facsimile edition. It is by far the best of her books, having a directness and freshness many non fiction equine tomes lack.
Harum-Scarum is not a bad book: it is a tragedy, and the emotional storms show its author’s youth.
Finding the books
Horsemanship and Harum-Scarum are very easy to find. You Were There is slightly less so.
