July 28, 2022, New York – Reading a good story about horses and the people who love them is almost as good as actually riding one! Well, maybe not, but you can find yourself in a good book when the story reflects your own life. We are proud to publish excerpts from many of the publications from Trafalgar Square Books, the leading publisher of equestrian books and DVDs.

This month features How Horse-Crazy Was Born - an Excerpt from "A Man Walks Into a Barn: Navigating Fatherhood in the Flawed and Fascinating World of Horses" By Chad Oldfather.

So, it’s no surprise that we can’t pin down the precise moment when Fate put us on the path to the barn. Was it the time, when we still lived in the Twin Cities, that we’d gone to the Wisconsin State Fair and walked through the horse barn? We paused to look in a few of the stalls, me lifting Ada high enough for her to see, getting her close but remaining mindful of the signs asking us not to touch the horses. Something about that moment led me, for the first time in my life, to pause to appreciate the majesty of these animals, and even to remark on it to Lea. I’m not generally one to get mystical, but it was a remarkable coincidence…if that’s what it was.
