Clare Balding on Animals and Other Family

Wednesday, May 01, 2013

Clare Balding talks about growing up in an unusual household—with more than 100 thoroughbred racehorses, mares, foals, and ponies, as well as an ever-present pack of dogs. As the child of a renowned horse trainer, Clare rode legendary racehorses and received her first pony as a gift from Her Majesty the Queen of England. In her memoir My Animals and Other Family, she writes of her struggles growing up and tells her own coming-of-age story through portraits of her beloved horses and dogs.
