“….There are useful human life lessons here: Create a team, Balding urges, delegate, do your research, believe in yourself, and magic ensues..” The Observer


“Charlie is a feisty, funny girl who will appeal to pony-mad readers who’ll devour all the inside knowledge of the equine world that Balding brings to her debut.” Daily Mail
