Are you a Horse Addict? Then this book is for you! Know a Horse Addict? Give them a copy too!

Horse addicts come in all shapes, sizes and guises but we are easily recognizable as a unique breed. Anyone who has ever had a horse, or knows anyone with a horse, will also know that horses are more addictive than alcohol and narcotics, can be just as expensive and there isn’t a Betty Ford clinic anywhere that will cure the addiction.

Sneak preview

Female Horse Addict has a wardrobe full of rather nice clothes with the labels still on which she once bought in case she goes somewhere where jodhpurs are not included in the dress code.

A smart jacket means black for affiliated competitions or tweed for riding club. It may also mean the only jacket of any description in the wardrobe not covered in horse slobber.

In the absence of a real pony, Pony Mad Child will prance about as if she is one. She will trot instead of run, canter instead of skip and frequently put in the odd neigh, snort or a spot of head shaking. Don’t be alarmed, this is normal behaviour and she will grow out of it – usually around 50ish.

Yorkshire Post said, ‘Potentially the best stocking filler of the year; One Hundred Ways to Live with a Horse Addict, could rise up the equestrian better selling lists this Christmas. The £3.99 paperback from Hodder and Stoughton is a very humorous guide to life with a horsy other. There is a hoot a page from the pen of Tina Bettison.’

The British Horse Society said, ‘The perfect gift for horse lovers or non horsy partners, this hilarious book pinpoints the characteristics of all horse addicts and shows that it is possible for addicts and non addicts to live in peace!’
