Not really a blog post, but I just had to share this fabulous Five Star Review from Ruffina Oserio for Readers' Favorite last week because I am thrilled with it and so proud!
"Winning Horsemanship: A Judge's Secrets and Tips for Your Success by Joanne Verikios is a book for horse riders, a brilliant book that combines the author’s experience as a riding champion and judge with smart writing to offer invaluable lessons to readers on how to go past being mere amateur riders to becoming experts, creating an enjoyable and fulfilling experience that drives success. Joanne Verikios’ book will help readers understand and harness the techniques that can make them one with their horses, learn the secrets
that expert trainers and riders use to win in the arena, understand the mistakes that can be costly, and learn how to use confidence and how to transmit it to their horses. In this slim but engaging book, the reader will learn how to prepare their horse for a competition, how to be ready for great performance, and a lot more.
I have never ridden a horse for a competition and although I am fascinated with horses, I have had only few occasions to ride one and the experience was an exciting one. This book is written for professional horse riders, but anyone will find it interesting. The author’s voice conveys a lot of confidence and the reader has no doubt that she is an expert in the field. I enjoyed the fact that most of the advice shared in this book derives from the author’s experience and it becomes even more compelling because the author herself has been a horse riding champion and judge. Winning Horsemanship: A Judge's Secrets and Tips for Your Success is written in a conversational, accessible, and engaging style that will appeal to a wide audience. This book will help any reader understand their horse, connect more intimately with it, and achieve great success within the arena and outside. I learned a lot about horses and the art of riding one."

From a very early age I have been able to tune in to what horses and ponies were thinking and what they were likely to do next.
