From her canine counterparts to the pony who knew her better than than her parents – Clare introduces us to the animal stars of her childhood (in Kingsclere, near Newbury). “I grew up in a rather unusual household,” Clare explains. “My father was a champion race horse trainer, so I grew up surrounded by 100 thoroughbreds, by mares, and foals, by a pack of Boxers and Lurchers, and to be perfectly honest, my brother Andrew and I came pretty near the bottom of the pecking order. Left to their own devices, they had to learn life’s toughest lessons through the animals, and through their adventures in the stables and the idyllic Hampshire Downs. But it was a magical childhood as well, and this is the story of that childhood… And most of all, it’s the story of the animals. It’s their story as much as it is mine.”
