Not Quite a Horsewoman has, since its publication in 1982, delighted more than a decade of aspirant riders and horse owners.Now in it's third edition and embellished with even more delightful cartoons by Anne Pilgrim, it will entertain a new generation of horse lovers, as Caroline Akrill reveals the frequent disasters and the occasional triumphs of her long association with a string of equine characters.
Ambitions and aspirations fall by the wayside as she tells the story of her leading rein pony, the saga of her show hack and the tale of her season as a hunting columnist. She remembers her first stable yard where she was exploited by her own working pupils, her brief career as a dealer operating from a small village pub, and the agonies of professionally producing show ponies as their owners waited at the ring-side with their livery cheques still unwritten.
