About the author
Bridget Beresford lived in France for a time where she was heavily involved in the horse world. On returning to England set up her own yard in Devon where she bred and broke in horses. She also evented and rode in point-to-point races. Now living in East Sussex, she is a listed British dressage judge and judges regularly at horse trials. She is also an equine iridologist. Bridget Beresford also wrote Home By Christmas, which tells the story of a cavalry officer at the start of World War I, and Lions Guard the Way, which takes the same British cavalrymen to British East Africa in 1915. Both the WWI books were written with the help of Richard Waygood MBE, chef d’équipe to the British dressage team, the international two-star eventing team and ex-riding master of the Household Cavalry.
