Win one of four copies of the book 'Legend: A True Story'
We've teamed up with equestrian book publisher Forelock Books to offer one lucky winner a signed and inscribed copy of the book 'Legend: A True Story', by Elizabeth Spencer. Three runners-up will receive a copy of the book each.
In this remarkable true story about an extraordinary pony, Lady Elizabeth Kitson has recounted the wonderful tale of Legend - with whom she won at the Royal International Horse Show three years running from 1946 to 1948, and at the first Horse of The Year Show in 1949.
Lady Elizabeth, who is 77 and lives on the edge of Dartmoor in Devon, decided to write the beguiling story of the most famous show pony ever as a legacy for her grandchildren and in her book she recounts life as a young girl, during and after the war. She tells of what it was like growing up in the English countryside, of family life, of different communities, of a time where horses travelled up to London by train and of the magical impact they had on the showing world.
A renowned artist, Elizabeth has illustrated the book with her own paintings and she tells her story through both her own and Legend’s eyes giving a touching and amusing insight into the human world from a horse’s point of view.
Legend A True Story is published by Forelock Books http://www.forelock-books.co.uk.
