Look it's Lady

Elaine Bolton

Suffield Press


The Idea of writing a book as a step by step guide into breaking a seven year old Shire mare is to be commended.  It is even more commendable that it is written with great feeling, humour and technical correctness.  This makes it a unique understanding.

 

Elaine Bolton has used her training as a Qualified British Horse Society Assistant Instructor to produce this enterprising book.  With great determination she continued with her task when lesser mortals would have given in.

 

As a Breed the Shire Horse is not considered a riding horse in this country but overseas, particularly in Europe, most are ridden.  In recent years over a hundred have been exported each year to Europe.  The fact that Lady was seven years old at the commencement of the venture makes it even more remarkable but it does show the temperament of the Shire Horse.  It is never too late to learn for a horse or rider.

 

This book is a must for all horse lovers.  Everybody will relate to the problems overcome by Elaine Bolton.  It is written with great humour and her determination and dedication to the horse shows through.  It is an accurate reference book for anybody breaking in a horse.
