According to mentor Dr. Kathy Kelly, .. .as this book shows, Kiki was t content to educate herself. Through her articles, she reached out to others, wanting to share what kwledge she gained, so that everyone would enjoy the horses like she did. Enthusiastic young riders around the country can read a comprehensive, hands-on account of what it's like to grow up in a world full of horses. This book is spilling over with first hand accounts of topics ranging from Pony Club, to competitions and ribbons, grooming, and friends (two and four legged), caring for your tack, and winter rides in the woods. In short, this is a horse book for kids, which was written and illustrated by a kid...a young Kiki Osbourne (age 12 - 16) that you'll love matter what your age. Today, Kiki (a graduate A ) trains people and horses for a living, and is also a competitive eventer. She gathered up fifty-one of her favorite Equispecial columns, weaved them together into a book that she's entitled The Kiki Chronicles: An Equispecial Journey.
