Jackie Parryabout this book: We're ordinary people, but we tend to do extraordinary things.
So, when we rescued five Standardbred horses and set off into the Australian bush with our entire belongings on horseback, we worked hard but didn't think it was too sensational.
But we couldn't have been more wrong. What took place between human and horse still makes us cry, laugh-out-loud, wince, and cherish. I'm in company of the physical pain, even today; the emotional ride will never leave me.
But it was magic and together we witnessed a miracle.
What started as a fun adventure turned into a remarkable story of friendship, endearing trust and bonds that were so fierce they'll make your eyes water.
This will stay with you for a long time.
I donate 50% of all profits from this book to horse/animal charities. I'm not rich, just passionate about horses.
The title relates to the horses being Standardbreds - a breed used for trotting and pacing in Australia.
