Saddle up for a ride in the glorious Yorkshire countryside!
Depleted from her battle with post-natal depression, Grace longs for a life that is more than just work, child-care and endless laundry. A chance meeting with an aristocratic showjumper reignites her childhood dream of owning a pony. As fate leads her to a ramshackle livery yard, full of eccentric characters, she finds a young horse in need of training. With her complete lack of experience, life becomes a rollercoaster of challenging yet exhilarating adventures. Assistance appears in the form of a military-style riding instructor, a retired Gypsy Cob breeder and a wonderful, wise woman living on a remote mountain farm. By learning to listen to the silent language of the horse, Grace finds the healing for which she's been yearning.
For fans of James Herriot and Ruby Ferguson’s Jill books, The Yard is a hilarious and heart-warming, feel-good read.
The Yard - How a Horse Healed My Heart - will be available to buy from all major book shops, Amazon and on all digital platforms from June 2022.
