“Even the chapter headings are well-written – eg ‘Bucking and Farting’, and ‘Here’s My Heart.'”
You’ll feel no pain, but you will experience ours.
Meet the stars!
The paperback book contains colour pictures, but here’s thefull photo album for everyone to enjoy. Meet the real stars of the story.
But wait – there’s more!
I will donate 50% of all profits to help rescue more horses. So please share these words with anyone who enjoys reading about ordinary people achieving truly extraordinary things – any animal lovers, or adventurers too.
I’ve been uncovered and exposed. I’ve been cajoled, poked, pushed and pulled.
It’s been a roller-coaster couple of days.
“Dig deep,” she said, “search your soul….”
For twenty-four hours I was worrying and fretting; how was I going to do this?
Then…. I GOT it!

I laughed, I cried, I did both at once!
Even I understand myself better now.
It started last year (or seventeen years ago, depending how far you delve into my psyche!) In 2013, Noel and I rescued five horses and trekked part of the Bicentennial National Trail.
Jackie’s on Charlie taking the picture, so you can see part of Ned. Noel and his three behind.
I’ve written the story, and the editors (at Narrative Ink Editing LCC) said, “This was an absolute joy to read! It’s such a unique story. The characters are funny and kind and endearing. This book at times had me laughing out loud, but it is serious too…. Some of your descriptive passages were absolutely breathtaking. At times I felt like I was right there on the trail with them all.”

A Whole New Level
Now, together, we’ve taken the story to another level. Fears, accomplishments and my very soul weaves through the book; so not only will you laugh, cry, and be shocked, you will ride the trail with Noel and I, and you will also cling to the emotional roller coaster with me.
