My Life With Horses
My Life With Horses
  • Description
  • Related

This delightful book provides the reader with the life story of a man and his association with horses. Jack Juby (born 1920) had a remarkable gift, an ability to work with heavy horses that was almost uncanny. So much so that he was recognised as a national figure in the horse world, renowned not only for his knowledge of the working horse but instrumental in helping to save the endangered Percheron breed.

Set in Norfolk the book is told largely in Jack’s own words, transcribed form a series of taped interviews taken by his daughter, and co-editor of this book, Alison Downes. Many aspects of country lore and farming life are covered, particularly in the years when horses were still commonly used on farms, and when the farm labourer’s life was hard. Yet Jack’s sense of humour, wisdom and kindness shines through on every page.

Here is a book for horse lovers and people who love the countryside as it used to be.

Alison Downes and Alan Childs both live in Norfolk. Alison is the daughter of Jack Juby and brings to this book many personal memories of her father. Alan Childs is an established writer having co-authored two other books for Halsgrove, Face to Face (based on Sheringham and the photographs of Olive Edis), and Discover the North Norfolk Coast.
