The second book in the Sweetbriars Equestrian Book Series tells the story of twelve-year-old Tabby and is set in The Dales - a fictional rural Devon village in the South west of England.

After the disappearance of her father, several years before, Tabby, her older sister Ava and her mother, are still grappling with the consequences. Things need to be brought out into the open... but go on being unsaid, as a huge rift develops leaving the family at odds with each other.

While Tabby battles her feelings of being neglected by her mother, she unexpectedly has to face another battle - to find the courage to save her last horse, Nancy from being sent to a premature end at the knacker’s yard.

Tabby also has the responsibility of caring for a young horse, Bliss - her dream horse who was entrusted to her and is recovering from a serious accident. The clock is ticking as Tabby nurses him back to health and peak performance in order to be able to achieve her dream: to participate in the try-outs for the British Young Riders Squad.

By her side are her two best friends, Cate and Violet. Tabby also develops an unlikely friendship – with Sophia. Tabby realises she has much more in common with her than she ever could have imagined.  

It's a big year for Tabby... will she be able to find the courage not only to save the horses she loves the most, but also to speak up and tell the people closest to her how she really feels?

The first book in the Sweetbriars Equestrian Book Series: Leaving The City, has been well received by readers, bloggers and British magazines, including Horse & Hound, who called the book 'A must read for every horsey child'.  The new book, Tabby's Big Year follows on from the first book, but can be read stand alone.

Temporary blurb, subject to change.
