Support for mothers who also love horses

Top 5 on my reading list!

Now Autumn is upon us, I enjoy nothing more than snuggling up with a good book. I am going to share with you my upcoming reading list which includes a mixture of horsey and parenting humour!

No.1 on my list is by Victoria Brant of the Wimpy Eventer. I finally completed the set by treating myself to the 3rd and final book when I purchased a signed copy at Burghley horse trials the other week.

No.2 Having read the 1st book in the set ‘Why Mummy Drinks’ by Gill Sims I am eager to read her other 2 books. If you haven’t seen this already then I would recommend for any parent as she gives a very honest account of parenting. She also has a very amusing Facebook page called Peter and Jane. Mummy likes gin and has Judgy the dog (warning though for those who do not like bad language).

No.3 Another horsey one now from the Skint Dressage Daddy. This hilarious author is subjected to all manor of horsey activities and matchy-matchy by his daughter who loves horses and dressage, which he funds! Cannot wait to read this if it is anything like his Facebook posts.

No.4 This one I haven’t yet purchased but is on my Amazon wishlist, the title of this book made me chuckle so thought I would give it a try!

No.5 This final book although on my list, I have already read but as a parent I highly recommend it for a bit of humour. Again there is a Facebook page Hurrah for gin, well-known for its use of stick people for illustrations regarding life with kids. Katie has since written 2 more books along the same lines which I do want to read.

I hope that you have enjoyed my top 5 reads. Please let me know in the comments any other horsey or parenting books which you recommend!

      I was doing well with reading but it’s stopped again recently. I’m definitely going to start again now winter is coming. I need to try and pick a book up more than my phone, as I get tempted to read lots of stuff online instead.
