Carrots, carrots, carrots...
on May 29, 2015
What a frustrating read. I couldn't get past the abuse of the trainers towards Nancy (and Eli in the case of the first one). Grow a pair and take a cue from Dr. Phil who's one and only smartest line is "you teach people how to treat you". Zero tolerance, Nancy!!!
Second, why not ride this poor, injury-prone equine as a pleasure trail horse? All the dressage drama and subsequent pain could've been avoided. It's like the author was constantly punishing herself. So odd.
Third, but probably the most important, the CARROTS!!! On my lord, the carrots. 20 pounds a week?! Who in their right mind thinks that's okay? Over treat with something else for gods sake! I cringed every time I had to read about the carrots. Painful.
Lastly the book just up and ended out of nowhere. After making it through to the final pages I needed more than the trite parting sentences I got. Ugh.
