Josh Johnson breeds Shire horses, but then runs into bad luck: his best horse has an accident, and more disasters follow, including foot and mouth on a nearby farm. Once more though, he builds up his winning strain of horses.
I’m a freelance writer, editor and proof reader. I’ve written Heroines on Horseback (2013), a gallop through the pony book in children’s fiction, and have written the world’s largest website on equine literature.
My earliest horse memory is being bitten on the arm by a piebald who lived in the field at the end of our garden. It did not put me off.
