"Keep your hands down and sit down hard!" That's good advice for horse-loving audiophiles when it comes to this amusing memoir of the author's riding adventures in woodsy Somerset, deep in the heart of English horse country. Another bit of good advice, from the reviewer this time, is, "Turn up the treble; turn down the bass; volume at max, and don't let Dolby near it." The production itself comes through as a bit distant and muffled, but Annie Aldington reads very well. Her rendition of the Somerset country accent is really charming. Her enunciation is crisp, and her voice bright, which helps to compensate for shortcomings at the production level. It's worth the listening effort. MAKING THE HORSE LAUGH will also make the devoted listener laugh, and want to dust off that old riding habit. L.R.S. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 01]
