    Default Book recommendation--"Dressage Chronicles"

    I just read "The Dressage Chronicles" by Karen McGoldrick, which I picked up at Equine Affaire. Though I'm not a dressage rider, it was a fun read--similar to "Horseplay" in plot, with a woman splitting up with her boyfriend to go be a working student for a dressage trainer in Florida for the winter, but with less of the rather outlandish moments. (No cults in this one...) Lots of good, interesting detail, and good characters. Don't know if it's already been mentioned on the dressage board, but even non-dressage folks can enjoy it. (:

    I thought it was entertaining as well. Good summer, beach-type read.

    Yep, I think COTH was all over this book last year. I heard about it here first, I believe. The accuracy of the horse details was a wonderful thing.

    The author is on Facebook, and she has said that she is entertaining the idea of a sequel.
