"Mindy it was so lovely to meet you recently after having read every one of your blogs for two years. Your infectious energy and positive personality is even richer in life as it is in your writing. You are a rare soul of the earth."
"My heart was in my throat while I read this and I just about cried when you completed! Haha what an amazing achievement. Well done!"
"Mindy that brought tears to my eyes. I've been doing endurance for years and your blogs evoke so many emotions familiar to me. Please continue to write I am enjoying your blogs so much"
"So much positivity. I'd of given up ages ago! I might get off my butt and go out for a ride today now after reading that! Keep them coming Mindy I might end up at a 20km at this rate!"
"Chasing a Quilty, the book is about starting out in Endurance Horse Riding with an advantageous dream to enter a Tom Quilty Gold Cup 160km in one day ride. It's not a How-To guide its an account of one person's experience over 3 years following her dreams and overcoming everyday obstacles that got in the way. It will take you into the atmosphere of Endurance Riding and you won't want to come out!!"
"Hi:-) I'm finished your book, wow! You are an inspiration, you have given me the guts to go out and try a 40, I doubt I'll ever go further than that but it's always been something I wanted to do but never thought I could. So it's not only me who has naughty horses in a group, I feel I have a much better understanding of endurance rides now!!
Thank you for the book and sharing your dreams and experience. If you are out there at the Quilty this year, GOOD LUCK "
