Fran Severn, author of Riders of a Certain Age: Your Guide to Loving Horses Mid-Life and Beyond, will present two seminars at Equine Affaire on November 13.
Taking a cue from two of the most popular chapters in her book, Severn’s presentations are “It’s Never Too Late for Horses” and “Help! My Partner Hates Horses!”
“It’s Never Too Late for Horses” touches on the most common concerns of older riders: physical and mental requirements, fear, finances, and protecting our horses as we age. “Help! My Partner Hates Horses!” looks at some of the reasons for the lack of support for family and friends and techniques for winning them over (or at least reaching détente.)
Riders of a Certain Age has been called “the most comprehensive book for new equestrians” by Heather Wallace, author of The Timid Rider, “with just the right tone of pragmatic advice, to keep us riding forward at a point in life when others might expect us to whoa. From leasing to leakage, money to manure, this engagingly candid, comprehensive resource is an owner’s manual for reclaiming the right to indulge your horse-loving inner child” by equine journalist L.A. Sokolowski. Excerpts can be found at www.ridersofacertainage.com.
“It’s Never too Late for Horses,” will be presented at noon on Sunday, at the seminar stage in the Better Living Center. “Help! My Partner Hates Horses” will be presented at 2PM at the Demo Ring in Mallary North. Fran will be greeting readers and signing copies of the book at the Trafalgar Square Publishing booth and the Taborton Books booths on Sunday before and after the presentations.
