This woman acheived her dream and made it look so easy, just give my job up as an accountant and move into a house with room for a few horses, and start rehoming ex-racehorses!
Lynn Reardon was not even a horse expert, she was nervous of horses and still having riding lessons when this change happened !
These are tales of the horses she has re-homed and their characters and some of the characters she met along the way. It is a heartwarming story, but she seemed to get a lot of funding and there was not the agonizing that comes with a lot of books regarding animal charities as funding run out.I must admit i had never really thought about the horses which do not make the top horse racing grade and what happens to them. At the end of the book it does give a list of several charities ( this is an American book ) in various states which have been set up to help ex race horses. yet there are sections of American society who are trying to eradicate the Mustang the wild horses of America, who played a pivotal part in the making of a nation, lets hope there are just as many people dedicated to these horses as there are to the racehorse industry.
