The Life and Times of 31 Equestrians in Ireland, America, France and Australia
Specialising in horses, Noel produced his first book, “Horse Tales and Hunt Talk”, in late December 2006 to rave reviews. This book captures the excitement, amusing incidents and outstanding achievments of some of the most remarkable horsemen and horsewomen in the world. One man broke the Bareback Highjump World Record, while a lady on doctors orders never to ride a horse again, climbed the north face of Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world. Outstanding horseriding skills are recounted of another lady on her horse who jumped an 18 foot wide river while hunting in order to stay with her hounds. All 31 people profiled excelled in one or more equestrian diciplines like showjumping, eventing, hunting, polo, showing, racing or dressage. Many achieved National honours, while others represented their country at International and Olympic level.
