Guest Post with Christine Meuiner

Learning through Books

Reading can be an incredible form of escapism, joining a world that is at times more appealing than the real world around us.  They are also a great source of information, which in turn becomes knowledge that can aid us in the world of work and study.


One thing that I like most about reading is that you can enter this world created by the author, learn about it and dream big because of it.  I’m excited to talk to you today about by new release, Horse Country.


I have written this novel over a 10 or so year period, detailing events that are likely to occur if you work in a horse riding school or on a horse breeding property.  It is my hope that people will find the novel to be realistic, informative, humours and inspiring.


The horse industry is an incredible one to work in and I hope that Horse Country highlights this.  This novel is being released today so why not take a look at excerpt from the novel and consider if you want to purchase a copy so that you can escape into the world of horses?
Released today!!!


About the author:

Christine Meunier considers herself introduced to the wonderful world of horses at the late age of 13 when her parents agreed to lease a horse for her.  She started experiencing horses via books from a young age and continues to do so, but recognises that horses cannot be learnt solely from books.

She has been studying horses from age 16, starting with the Certificate II in Horse Studies and is currently undertaking her Bachelor of Equine Science via distance education.

Christine has worked at numerous thoroughbred studs in Australia as well as overseas in Ireland for a breeding season.

She then gained experience in a couple of Melbourne based horse riding schools, instructing at a basic level before heading off overseas again, this time to South Africa to spend hours in the saddle of endurance and trail horses on the Wild Coast.

Particularly passionate about the world of breeding horses, she teaches equine studies focused on breeding, at a TAFE, Victoria, Australia.

She also writes a blog about equine education which you can view at




Christine Meunier has lived a life breathing, dreaming and working with horses in the thoroughbred industry in Australia and has also travelled overseas to work in the industry.  Horse Country takes her own personal experiences woven into a story about four young women studying and working in the horse industry.


Follow Lise and Wes as they work their way around North East Victoria, Australia in the seasonal world of breeding thoroughbreds.  Horse Country follows the seasons of the thoroughbred industry and what the day to day of working on a stud could look like.


A few hours away, Maddie and Melanie are working hard in their parent’s metropolitan riding school, teaching others about horse riding and care of the horse.  From the nervous first time rider, to the child who wants to run fast and jump high, the young women shape lessons to suit the individual.


Horses offer a great opportunity to study, learn, work and develop an incredible career around the world.  Set in Australia, this novel shows that the land down under is indeed a Horse Country.
