InformationThe fourth horse-based book by Tom Moates
Round-Up: A Gathering of Equine Writings, is a compilation of articles and essays by renowned equestrian journalist and author, Tom Moates. In this, his fourth horse-based book, Moates compiles twenty of his most notable stories. Many originally ran in magazines such as America’s Horse, Eclectic-Horseman, Equus, The American Quarter Horse Journal, and Western Horseman.The foreword by A. J. Mangum sums it up: “Tom shares his pursuit of answers with a brand of journalism fueled by an intellectual curiosity his peers in the equestrian media would be wise to emulate, providing in the end a wisdom forged by observations, impressions and firsthand experiences.”
Remarkable horses and horse folk from an immensely wide spectrum of experiences are profiled in this compilation. From tremendous horseback adventures measured in the thousands of miles by such people as notable novelist, Douglas Preston, and Olympic medalist, David O’Connor, to the retirement of Joe, a beloved and long time Professional Bull Riders (PBR) pick up horse, to interviews with ranch women, Texas day work cowboys, Hollywood horse wranglers, and a vet pioneering innovative wound healing technology—Moates covers all this and more, now rounded up between two covers in: Round-Up: A Gathering of Equine Writings.
