            Author Elizabeth Benney was a brat of a child. She's completely candid about it - self-centered, perverse, willful, obstinate ...living for her one passionate obsession - horses. It's a life-story that at last faces up to what we must all confront, that's if we're lucky enough to... live long enough. What will it be, in our own advancing years, which we will be forced to give up, forever? Will she ever learn to say 'No more'? Liz Benney portrays her day-to-day life running of their New England horse farm, and the many return visits to her own country, New Zealand. Then there are her accounts of her girlhood, her forays into the Antarctic and into deepest China, and her extraordinary capacity for attracting memorable characters. Throughout it all is the foundation of her marriage to 'rock solid' Kiwi mathematician Dave, her family and friends and the undying 'can do' spirit of her pioneering New Zealand forbears. Michael Korda, publisher, editor and bestselling author (his biography of T.E. Lawrence) has said: 'I enjoyed reading this story very much. It is funny, sometimes sad, and full of great stories, exactly what a memoir should be.'

            Blame it or praise it, there is no denying the wild horse in us. -Virgina Woolf What if you could take a week off from your life every year and meet up with a group of friends to ride horses in the remote north of Iceland? Crazed midnight sun energy, randy stallions, Arctic cuisi...ne, challenging place names, ghost encounters, never-too-late in life crushes - in the land where unexpected adventures repeatedly astonish you. In Tory Bilski's memoir, Iceland becomes a Land of Oz, where an unencumbered version of the author emerges when, for one week each year, she can slip the chains of her everyday routine and responsibilities and really be herself. The author and her fellow travellers are more daring, resilient, noisier, gluttonous, and the author finds that otherwise tamped down 'wild horse' in herself. Each year brings a discovery about Iceland, about herself and about her friendship with the women, who not only find their best selves but revel in being their most ridiculous selves .

            Equine Journeys: The British Horse World

            Equine Journeys: The British Horse World (Hardback)

            Equine Journeys casts an unprecedented eye on Britain's horse world, focusing on people, places and organizations instrumental in the breeding, racing, keeping and showing of breeds in the UK - one of the world's foremost equine universes. From Scottish hill farmers breeding High...land ponies, Shetlands and Icelandics to the luxurious world of Arabian horse breeders, from neighbourhood stables to studs that foster some of the world's greatest horses (creating multi-billion-pound businesses in the process and supporting the global racing calendar), the book shows how that business is defining the long-standing relationship between horse and human. In words and pictures, Equine Journeys explores the fundamentals that underpin the economics, politics and sporting components of some of the UK's greatest breeding and racing studs. Up-close-and-personal profiles provide unequalled access to owners, breeders, trainers, jockeys, stable lads and lasses, and polo fanatics. Enriched by a wealth of exclusively commissioned photographs, Equine Journeys features compelling images reflecting both the fantasy and the reality of breeding and racing in Britain today. Specially commissioned essays by leading experts elaborate on the history of the horse and its place in British history, as well as looking inside the fiercely competitive contemporary breeding and racing scene. It provides an invaluable survey of current trends and key players while shining a light on the exotic and the extraordinary in the realm of racehorses and gymkhana ponies, Shetlands and Clydesdales, gypsy cobs and police horses, polo clubs and the London and Counties social scene. Equine Journeys will explore the landscape and the sociology of horses, horse sense and horsemanship in Britain at a time when the horse has lost its millennia-long economic and strategic importance, becoming a companion to humans, a source of natural beauty and the inspiration for sport.
