Overview

"This is a horse story for grown-ups. The Black Stallion for adults."

"Written by a horse person for horse people"

"Enchanting and consuming."

Six horses and Saratoga. It's a young trainer's dream come true, and it's happening for Alex at last: Alexander is entrusting the farm's racing string to her while he heads Down Under to help run his sick brother's farm.

But Saratoga isn't interested in Alex without Alexander. Unproven and decidedly female in a man's world, Alex finds herself the target of old-school racetrackers certain she married her way into training good horses. At the same time, her naïve assistant, Kerri, is far too interested in the less-than-scrupulous trainer who shares their barn.

But running a racing stable doesn't leave much time for petty fights and stable rivalries. Horses need to be worked, races need to be run. And Alex has her eye on something besides the winner's circle: a funny-faced filly, a chestnut nobody with a spotty blaze and a decided lack of brakes. Saratoga thinks the filly has a screw loose. But Alex knows better.

From training track gossip to tack-room confidentials, OTHER PEOPLE'S HORSES continues the story of Alex and Alexander -- two Thoroughbred trainers trying to do that right thing -- that began in THE HEAD AND NOT THE HEART.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com - Michael Guerini
An excellent book that captured my imagination and had me feeling as if I was walking along with Alex on this journey.

The horsemanship and subtle ways Alex trains the horses is so very much appreciated by me. The horse racing is great, the storyline is fabulous and takes us deep into thinking about the importance of friendships, relationships, and the journey we call life. For those of us who love horses, we know that every so often a horse comes along that will make us a better person

Meet the Author

After twenty years of working with countless horses in half-a-dozen disciplines, Natalie Keller Reinert packed away her saddle, put her feet up on the tack trunk, and settled down to write. From the short stirrup classes at dusty hunter/jumper shows in Florida to galloping the inner dirt at Aqueduct Racetrack in New York City, it's always been about Thoroughbreds. Now settled in Brooklyn, New York, with her husband Cory and son Calvin, she works with horses every day and writes every night.

Reinert also edits Retired Racehorse Blog, a celebration of Off-Track Thoroughbreds, and writes a literary column for Dappled Grey, an equestrian style blog.

    Reading it now! As a racehorse person, I am taking the backside scenes in stride, no pun intended. Lots of seedy characters here, though happily I have not run into many in real life. What I'm loving most about this book is the writing. It's fluid, it's fun. I'm also loving the main character's (Alex) strengths and frailties. She is most at home on the farm back in Florida and we are privy to go along with her on her maiden voyage to Saratoga as a trainer. Okay, back to reading...

    Finished it in a day! Loved it! Looking forward to the next book in the series!

    This is a much anticipated sequel to "The Head & Not The Heart" and Alex has grown as a racehorse trainer. She is now champing at the bit to be given more of a free rein.

    This story tells us what happened - and you will get no spoilers from me!

    I actually read this book in one sitting as I found it impossible to put down; beautifully written, by someone who obviously knows and loves horses. Natalie Keller Reinert guides us expertly through the processes involved in training race horses, in informative, jargon free narrative that has very human story-lines woven in.

    Her principal characters are utterly believable, and the "background actors" are summed up in concise, deadly accurate phrases. One gets the feel of the shedrows and gallops and her descriptions of the actual races are gripping.

    This is a book with a great story line that will appeal as much to non horsey people as it will to the horsey.

    I can't wait for the next one!
