We think reading and writing go hand in hand, so to have a bookshelf on Haynet with a range of titles following the equestrian and countryside theme is essential. We feel strongly to showcase independent authors here at Haynet, so this section is dedicated to those. Please take a look at the following featured titles from these brilliant writers and better still buy a copy for your bookshelf or download a title to have on hand on your Kindle.
If you are an independant author that has written a book that would be of interest to our equestrian and countrylife audience, then please CONTACT US to discuss posting your book on this page.

Gemcie and her Irish Hunter, Marshal, are about to capture the World Cup when a nasty fall dashes their chances.
While she is mending, her arch rival seizes this opportunity to catch a ride on Marshal, and to seduce her young husband. Confused and dazed by her new circumstances, Gemcie heads for the high Sierras hoping the majestic spires that captured the heart of the father she never met will provide the answers she seeks. She finds strength and solace riding solo on the John Muir Trail, but a bear attack ends her time of introspection and places her in the care of a solitary cowboy manning a fire lookout. Brady shows her love and gives her the courage to get back in the saddle. Haunted by images of Marshal being abused by his owners, Gemcie returns to rescue him and fly high with him once more. Ballou’s prose gallops ahead at breakneck speed as she takes you along on this wild ride. READ A REVIEW
