There was nothing I disliked about the book and I would recommend it to all horse lovers and anyone who believes in animals helping children. This is a book for the horse lovers out there. It is about a special race horse retirement establishment that expanded it's care to include children with special needs. There are special stories of the connections that are made between the horses and the children. A lovely heart warming book.
Very inspiring and touching story about how kids lives are turned around by the animals on Helen Yeadon's farm. And how the quiet Sophie is completely transformed by the jumpy horse Darcy Day. This book has inappropriate language and I am appalled that it is in children's books.
See all 5 reviews. Mar 03, Lucinda rated it it was amazing. It is a book that has taken me 11days or should i just say over a week to read and for me this is a great achivement because i am normally a very slow reader and someone who takes ages even on slight books such as this one. It was the combination of horses, a personal acount and the fact that it was about a charity with which i could easily realte to and empathise with, that made it such a winner and also which made me read it in record timing because i just did not want to put it down.
It is such a down to earth and emotional acount that is terribly heartfelt and honest and which both the charity and Helen Yeadon should be proud of because even though there are no false 'airs and graces' or scenarios to help make the charity look glossy, it is the honest acounts that make it so significant and the charity is great due to personal merits which do not need to be advertised or heralded to make them stand-out.
When Sophie Met Darcy Day
There are many racehorse charities that acomplish about half of what Greatwood does but it is the extra parts and additions that Greatwood also does which makes it a completely unique charity and one which is not only uniquely different but special. Horses are great healers and so too are all kinds of animals and it is the 'horse power' concept that Greatwood provides which really caught my undevided attention, both practically and also emotionally too because i have done some work with the RDA Riding for thr Disabled Association.
I could completely understand what they are trying to do and achieve when it comes to children with all kinds of learning difficulties and special needs, and it is this particular element that facinated me whilst reading the book. The book just proves that people who are quite well established within top class circles of society and whom have come into contact with even HRH the princess royal, can still be very down to earth human beings and i could relate and understand all of Helen's views and thoughts on horses, houses, farms and charities and for someone such as myself who hates to see animal cruelty this book was a triumph.
I loved the begining chapters that described the very first stages of how the charity came into being and it was so whitty, amusing and interesting that i was instantly hooked.

Also those who are interested in children or even those of us who work in the healthcare or medical industry, will be facinated by what Helen has to say. Nov 10, Jem rated it it was amazing. I was bitten by the horse bug very young and have remained an avid horse lover to this day, so reading about Greatwood and the fantastic work they have done in both rehoming and caring for ex-racers and neglected horses and ponies generally has been heartwarming. Not to mention the wonderful ways they have found to reach children thought to be beyond help.
I recommend this to anyone who is a horse lover! Mar 04, Amanda Gee rated it liked it. A beautiful, heart warming story. A lovely gentle read, just what I needed. Jan 10, Verity rated it really liked it. Loved this book and I instantly loved the writing style and seeing how the children have been affected by the horses. My only criticism is I would have liked more in depth stories about the child.
But then obviously there probably wasn't much else to tell in a 10 week course. Nov 12, Carolyne rated it it was amazing Shelves: This has to be one of the most inspirational and beautiful stories that I have read..
