Eventer's Dream is the first volume of Caroline Akrill's trilogy following Elaine's ambition to reach the top in Three Day Eventing. Vivid and realistic, life with horses is portrayed with real knowledge and sympathy. There is mud - and occasional blood - and the characters, both human and equine, are amusing, heroic, eccentric and, occasionally, rather sad.  In Chapter 14, the old bay mare makes a dignified exit, and Elaine turns her attention to the bay gelding.  Special thanks to Templeton Thompson for her song Girls and Horses, which is available on her website and on iTunes.

There is mud - and occasional blood - and the characters, both human and equine, are amusing, heroic, eccentric and, occasionally, rather sad.  In Chapter 12, the Fanes make an extra effort for the opening meet but the day would be incomplete without a touch of drama!
