This is a delightful and amusing read about a young girl growing up in a very unusual household.  Her father was a champion horse trainer in England so she shared her life with over 100 thoroughbred racehorses, mares, and ponies as well as a constant variety of dogs on a huge estate in the Hampshire Downs.  And Clare was often at the bottom of the pecking order in the family – boys always came first, and sometimes the horse and dogs did, too.  She shares amusing and poignant portraits of the beloved animals who buffer her tough challenges on her long road to becoming an award-winning broadcaster and proclaimed a “national treasure” as well as the gold medal winning presenter at the 2012 London Olympics.
