Book Review

Perfect Gift For Horse Lovers

Horse Lover's Daily Companion is the perfect gift for the horse lover who has everything else already. Chock full of all kinds of tips and treats about horses of all kinds, Audrey Pavia's treasure chest of information will easily keep readers happy.

What is unique about the book is that it is set up for a full 365 day year with ideas for each day of the week.

Mondays are devoted to horse breeds, both common and rare from the well known Appaloosa to the unusual Florida Cracker.

Tuesdays cover all kinds of equine activities and sports where even I, after well over fifty years of loving horses, discovered the sport of "steer daubing."

Wednesdays inspire with stories of horses in history. This may well be my favorite "day" of the book as I've always loved the legends of famous equines.

Thursdays introduce all kinds of training tips, horse behavior, and real life horse information.

Friday reminds us of horse health issues giving brief but sharp insight into diseases, treatments, general horse care and handling.

Saturday and Sunday offer up the fun where you can find a recipe for homemade horse treats or just discover a new way to spend quality time with your equine friend.

Illustrated with some often unexpected horse photography by Tom Sapp, Horse Lover's Daily Companion never fails to surprise with its original perspective. With an attached bookmark so you never lose your place this is the kind of book you can pick up, enjoy for a few minutes or savor for an afternoon of pleasant reading.
If you are wondering why I am reviewing a book here, it's because I was sent a complimentary copy for just that reason. My copy came in a neat little horse illustrated box filled with hay and a free carrot and apple for the Boys. To say they were delighted with the book is an understatment, although sharing the treats was not exactly their idea of good reading. I ended up supplementing the free treats with purchased ones to keep everyone happy, so in the end, The Boys have given Horse Lover's Daily Companion a big twelve hoofs up!


  1. Thanks I love review but a feedbakc is a sandwhich, positive, negative, positive. Anything you did not like, or you would like better for next time.
    It is how I have taught my son to give feedback on his reading book, he writes what he likes, what he did not like, how he woudl like things to be better ... ^-^

    Good thesis, anti-thesis and synthesis ^-^

    Thanks for the review!

  3. That does sound like a fun book. Does it come in calendar form? It sounds like it would work well for that, too.

  4. Thanks for the hooves up on this book. I'll check it out. Sounds like a fun book.

  5. That is a fun book with lots of interesting facts. I was checking it out at the local Borders the other day while having some coffee and was thinking that it would make an excellent holiday gift for some of my special horse friends.
