'I had spent most of my childhood thinking I was a dog, and suspect I had aged in dog years.' Clare Balding grew up in an unusual household. Her father a champion horse trainer, she shared her life with more than one hundred thoroughbred racehorses, mares, foals, and ponies, as well as an ever-present pack of dogs, on a sprawling estate in the Hampshire Downs. As a child, Clare happily rode the legendary racehorse Mill Reef and received her first pony, Valkyrie, as a gift from Her Majesty the Queen of England. But Clare ranked low in the family pecking order--as a girl, she was decidedly below her younger brother, and both of them were certainly below the horses. Left to her own devices, she had to learn life's toughest lessons through the animals, and through her adventures in the stables and the surrounding idyllic English countryside. From her struggles at boarding school to her triumphs as an amateur jockey and event rider, Clare weaves her own coming-of-age story through portraits of the beloved horses and dogs, from the protective Candy to the unruly Frank, who were her earliest friends. The running family joke was that "women ain't people". Clare has to prove them wrong, to make her voice heard--but first she had to make sure she had something to say. "My Animals and Other Family" is a witty, brave, and moving account of stumbling--often literally--into one's true self.
