    1. Loved this book! I could not put it down. Simon is such a unique, interesting character, I couldn't help but fall in love with him (although I admit in the beginning of Fortune's Fool I wasn't entirely sure I liked him lol). Really good description of the Eventing world and of course I recognized the Denny Emerson in Simon's mentor Daniel - that was lots of fun! I really hope there is a third (and 4th book) on its way.Simon's journey through his personal life and thoughts on relationships was re [...]

    2. Not so simple SimonThe continuing Eventing adventure of Simon and his horses, combined with his journey through life and love make for a good read in the first two books of this series. Nice young adult and older equestrian fiction in the key of real life. I look forward to the next book!

    3. I enjoyed this more than the first book in the series (although both are good). I'm excited to read #3.

    4. I have no idea why the photo is sideways, but it's the same on and .The sequel to Fortune's Fool, it tells the story of Simon, who has accepted a job as a working student at a German eventing barn. Hoping to get more riding time, Simon finds himself spending more time pushing a wheebarrow than riding. Fed up, he quits and returns to America. To make up for lost time, he takes a job with a well-known rider. Simon soon clashes with his boss's ethics, and that, added to the fact that Simon is near [...]

    5. I love Pagones' books. I do. I love their style and their bluntness and their utter lack of shame. Simon isn't afraid of anything (except being ordinary) and neither is Pagones' writing. If there are occasional moments where I wish Simon would stop thinking and start doing, they're not enough to detract from my utter fascination with his brash, hard-headed, full-hearted approach to life. I can't wait to see what he does next.

    6. I find these books both entertaining and educational, but I do find myself asking why Simon won’t spend time with his horses in the round pen or do a lot of desensitizing exercises??? Maybe actually improve the horse’s issues rather than just control them? Maybe he does that stuff and the author doesn’t mention it or maybe I am overthinking this :)

    7. Lovely, thoroughly enjoyedLovely!!! Read both in three days and thoroughly enjoyed this tale, with an oh so real look inside the world of upper level eventing. Satisfying and tremendously entertaining - and truly educational for wannabe eventers!
