Riding Barranca

Trafalgar Square

Finding Freedom and Forgiveness on the Midlife Trail

By Laura Chester.  In this remarkable one-year journal, skilled horsewoman and adventurer Laura Chester brings us into her world, where we deeply connect with the earth and its seasons, with beauty and sometimes danger. Carried along on waves of memory, released by the gaits of her smooth-moving fox trotter, this literary memoir takes us on a personal exploration as well — where family relationships are fractured by anger, jealousy, illness, and death. With the help of her big-hearted animal, Chester is able to retrieve the past and find forgiveness. For as she says — "Riding Barranca puts me in the moment, which is where I want to live."
