Why We Ride, What We Are Reading

  Why We Ride, published by Seal Press, is a collection of tender and compelling stories shared by published woman authors, revealing their addiction to and love affair with horses.

The foreword by best-selling author, Jane Smiley, sets the tone, and her contribution shares how her horse passion has helped to shape her journey and build confidence in the future.

Editor Verna Dreisback brings together a stellar group of storytellers, then transports us to an earlier time when her happiest moments were awakening to the sound of whinnying horses at the track.

Tender, sweet and compassionate, there is an enjoyable read in every page that not only evokes childhood memories of wishing for a horse, but shows how much we’ve learned from having them in our lives. The story of the 92 year-old grandmother who fervently wished to ride again shows that we are never too old to fulfill our dreams.
