"Candle flames flicker in the lamps on the flanks of our governess cart as a silver moon and sprinkled stars illuminate the driveway ahead."
This collection of short stories begins with a midnight cart drive through the snow to Midnight Mass. Other true and fictional tales of horses follow, based on Hilary's personal experiences with her son's naughty Welsh Mountain pony and a huge catalog of embarrassing incidents with her own equines.
This selection includes humorous accounts of what can go wrong at a show, sudden swimming pool accidents, uninvited horse entry into church, rescuing an unwanted racehorse and how a skinny neurotic Thoroughbred mare became the author's equine soulmate.
If there's one thing Hilary has learned, it's that you never know what might happen next with horses.
