Check out this great review of The Head and Not The Heart over at Eventing-A-Gogo!
The story is richly detailed, and it is clear the author is well-versed in all areas of the subject matter, from the leg movement of a potentially injured horse to the atmosphere of a Florida horse town to the interior of the Aqueduct barns. She knows these settings and she doesn’t miss a detail. You can almost taste the grime of a side street in Brooklyn, and you can exactly picture what the old Claremont Riding Academy looked like even if you had no idea of what it once was.
Much love to Andrea at Eventing-A-Gogo, who writes a clever, witty blog I’m sure you all read already, and whom I forgive whole-heartedly for not having an OTTB.
