My Animals and Other Family - Claire Balding

Claire balding's family was larger than most. Not only was there her brother, mother and champion-trainer father, but also racehorses, mares, foals, ponies and an ever-present pack of boxers and lurchers. In this unforgettable memoir, she shows how they taught her everything she knows about life, love, joy and sadness.

I never really knew anything about Claire Balding other than she is a TV Presenter and seeing her at Crufts.  I certainly had no idea that she was the daughter of a race horse trainer who famously trained Mill Reef.  Her memoir is a lovely account of her life with her family and of course her beloved animals.  Great as a holiday read and not just for adults.  What I didn't didn't know about you  Ms Balding was just what a naughty little girl you were!!!!
