You know what happens to all those girls who are just crazy about horses? Once they discover boys, the horses are history. Or maybe not. For Lizzy, and others like her, no boy, no man who knows what's good for him, speaks the unspeakable-"It's me or the horse." It's no contest. And so Lizzy snips the threads that hold her, however tenuously, to a conventional life and begins her journey into the world of horse sports. She signs on as a working student for dressage superstar Margot Fanning, heading to south Florida with her six year old mare, for "the season." She immerses herself in an extraordinary world of high-dollar horses and ambitious women and receives an incredible education in more than just riding dressage. And she's taking notes. Welcome to The Dressage Chronicles.

Karen has done a wonderful job writing a lively novel catching the essence of a side of the equestrian scene most people have no idea about. It shows the sport in a way everyone can relate to and will appeal to young and old, riders and non-riders.
