“FROM SOBER DRESS TO STURDY BOOTS” by Sarah Weston
“…heart-warming and heart-rending…”
This beautifully-illustrated book describes, in fascinating and witty detail, Sarah’s transformation from lawyer to horse-trainer, and the characters that she has met, both two-legged and four. If you are interested in the law courts, horses, ponies or the New Forest, then you are in for a treat!
Sarah’s new motto is neither a borrower nor a lender be since she has poured her heart and soul into this book, to say nothing of the sleepless, sleep-less or sleep less nights fighting with one-hundred-and-thirty-one hyphens. Buy it if you’re mentioned in it, buy it if you’re not. The characters include Professor Street and the Yorkshire Ripper as well as local Agisters and William the Conqueror (just briefly). The word pony appears 143 times so you can’t go wrong but there’s also love and heart-break.
