Hoof-beats through my heart

A life shared with horses

‘They have been the signposts at crucial turnings in my life.’

So writes author David Edelsten as he looks back on the horses he has owned or ridden throughout the years, as a shy and awkward boy, a young soldier, for pleasure or for work as a sporting journalist for Country Life, The Field, and Horse & Hound.

No sentimental account, this; David writes with concise and delicate understatement as he records the important moments, big and small, where his horses have played their part in his world.

It is a personal account, but it will strike a chord with all who have shared a genuine, give-and-take partnership with a horse which has influenced their lives for the better in some unforgettable way.
