Fred White’s name as a successful owner and rider of hones – and, as a real “character” – is known throughout the length and breadth of New Zealand.
In this book she tells her own story, covering her schooldays very briefly then plunging into her happy days with horse-loving families and friends, the horses she has owned, the horses she has ridden, the thrills and the spills, the setbacks and the successes.
Honey people the world over are renowned for working hard, riding hard and playing hard, and for being able to laugh at themselves, and Freda White is horsey plus- plus. She writes as she speaks,. – bluntly, vividly, with a most infectious sense of fun and a racy turn of good New Zealand horse-language. The many action photos and Ralph Cleland’s inimitable cartoons are a delightful accompaniment to the story.
A really happy and exciting book by a most remarkable horsewoman.
Hard cover. 111 pages. In very good pre-loved condition.
