Clare Balding grew up in a rather unusual household. As her father is a champion trainer, she shared her life with more than 100 thoroughbred racehorses, mares, foals, and ponies, as well as an ever-present pack of boxers and lurchers. As a toddler she would happily ride the legendary Mill Reef and take breakfast with the Queen. She and her younger brother came very low down 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.

I love hearing Clare's voice and learning so much about this amazing lady. I have watched her present with dedication and humour and it was lovely to hear her read the same way.

I am amazed at how much detail Richard and Mindy put into this book. I often listen to it and I feel so uplifted by it, so thank you both for everything.

People say 'like father, like son', and the story of my life has mirrored my father's to a quite uncanny degree. Right from when I was a little boy, he was my rock, my mentor, my hero. It is no exaggeration to say that he taught me virtually everything I know about both country life and television. Without him I certainly would not be doing what I am today.

The hilarious and heartwarming account of Miranda and her life changing dog, the inimitable and most lovable Peggy. Hello dear audiobook browser and welcome to Peggy and Me. The story of my life since getting a beautiful Shih-Tzu Bichon Frise cross puppy (I call the breed a Shitty Frise - fun) in the form of Peggy.

This is an amazing book. It's funny, happy, wonderful, poignant and extremely insightful. I loved every second of the book, it was really good to hear from Peggy's point of view. Please buy this audio book, I found it much better than reading the book myself. I highly recommend this book to all dog lovers and Miranda Hart followers.
