We love this book but sadly our book distributor is not planning to make this title a stock item, so we suggest that if you find we are out of stock, and/or would prefer to have a copy signed by Jeanette Brakewell, we suggest you go direct to the publisher who will despatch the title direct to you and in time for Christmas. Just click here - www.eventingworldwide.com or call 01400 250472. For any horse enthusiast, child or adult, this book is going to be at the top of their Christmas list this year. The story of Over to You (Jack has he's been known by all who've known him), told in both words and pictures is utterly compelling and will at times bring tears to your eyes for the eventing world won't seem quite the same without the cheekiness, ebullience and character of Over to You. Together, Over to You and Jeanette Brakewell have been an inspiration to an entire generation of people. Just read the testimonials and you'll see what we mean: From Pippa Funnell - Jack is unique, and together he and Jeanette made an exceptional partnership. As part of the team we knew we could rely on them; even in the dressage which wasn't Jack's strongest phase he was totally consistent. Invariably, going first cross country he would give us so much confidence. And from an aspiring young event rider - Jack first caught my eye when I was watching the Olympic games in 2000. I was just 8 years old and he reminded me so much of my little pony, Jester. How similar they look and behave too; liver chestnut, fine boned, wiry, very handsome, full-of-life, cheeky, but all heart, and like Jack, Jester's passion has always been the jumping and he puts up with the dressage knowing that something much more exciting comes next! Everytime I see Jester I think of Jack - a miniature version and he's even the same age. A wonderful hardback gift edition that's incredibly reasonably priced with profits going to the charity 'Spinal Research'.
