The second edition of the Equestrian Handbook of Excuses is a photography book released in 2018. This is not intended as a coffee table book, but a fun tongue-in-cheek gift or silly flip through. If you like sassy commentary and want to poke playfully at a friend or trainer, this book is for you.
As equestrians we are united by our love of horses. But whether you own, lease, or borrow some days you just want to call your trainer and cancel. For those days I’ve compiled a handy list of excuses to tell our trainers, our horses, or ourselves for why today just isn’t a good day to ride. Suitable for every level of rider, from lead line to Grand Prix.
Potential excuses cover ~ weather ~ your mood ~ your horse’s mood ~ random acts of laziness.
