Présentation de l'éditeur

Three sisters and an unforgettable journey to tame New Zealand's Kaimanawa horses For the Love of Horses is a heartfelt story about a life familiar to many young Kiwis who love horses - the trials and tears of Pony Club, the joy of riding bareback, and the pressures of adolescence and competitive showjumping. It is also the story of an unlikely childhood dream coming true. Every year in the wilderness of the Central Plateau, wild Kaimanawa horses are rounded up and sent to the slaughterhouse. It's upsetting, but what else can be done? The Wilson sisters decide something could be done. They saw future champions behind the fiery eyes and beneath the shaggy coats. In this touching book, Kelly Wilson tells the true story of how they embarked on a courageous journey to train horses that most people believed were untrainable.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful book about growing up with horses in New Zealand 10 octobre 2014
Par France K. - Publié sur Amazon.com
I can't praise this book highly enough. It tells the inspiring story of three New Zealand sisters who grew up with little but supportive parents and cantakerous ponies, and then went on to become Grand Prix showjumpers. Along the way they chose to devote their time and talents to help preserve New Zealand's native feral horses, the Kaimanewas. Horse lovers all over the world will enjoy their stories of grit, determination, sadness, success, humor, and loss, written beautifully and illustrated with gorgeous photographs. A must-have for anyone interested in saving wild horses around the world and for horse-mad people who want to see what a life dedicated to horses entails.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Inspiring true story 8 octobre 2014
Par Kate Lattey - Publié sur Amazon.com
From the moment I picked it up, I couldn't put this book down. Knowing the Wilsons and having followed their journey with their wild Kaimanawa ponies on Facebook, some of the stories and many of the images were familiar, but that didn't make the book any less enthralling to read. Their early struggles and humble beginnings were fascinating, and the images of the girls riding scruffy ponies in gumboots will seem a far cry from many who know them today as highly successful competition riders. Throughout the story there are two clear lessons to take away - the first is the power of perseverence and courage, often against impossible odds, and how much you can achieve if you follow your dreams, regardless of how far-fetched they seem; and the second is the importance of making sure that your horses are happy and enjoying their life in your company. This is one thing that so many riders and trainers seem to overlook, and even in years of riding it was Vicki who first emphasised to me, above all else, how important it is that your horse is happy. This is a true, unembellished story of three sisters' love for horses and their determination to get the most out of what life has to offer. Kelly wrote it beautifully and I was captivated from start to finish. I'll be recommending this book to everyone, whether they love horses or not!

This book is completely amazing and outstanding! I enjoyed every second of it and found it very hard to put it down! I loved reading about how the 3 of them went from nothing to something special! It has inspired me to go so much further with my horse! After reading this I went straight to my horse and thought about how much they had accomplished as a team and I have planned what I want to be doing with my horse and myself! This is a truly inspirational book that I have really enjoyed reading! I can't wait for the others to come out! These sisters are my heroes and I am going back to my horse with such a positive and determined attitude that I wouldn't of had without reading this book!! I loved every little bit of it! It was such a great read! Truly special!
