Year of the Horse: A Journey of Healing and Adventure
After a severe horseback riding accident in 2011, journalist and author Marjorie Simmins finds herself unable to walk. During the slow months of recovery, Simmins replays a lifetime of memories related to her beloved horse companions and the adventures they shared. Finally back on her feet, she makes a bold and surprising decision: she will ride again, in a discipline that is new for her, and she will even compete in a horse show--her first in 42 years. Vancouver-raised Simmins decides that 2014, the Chinese Year of the Horse, is her time for a comeback. Exhilarated but nervous, the former hunter-jumper of modest ability commits to full-time training as a Western rider.Paperback, 240 pp.
