Horsefever by Lee Hope

Horsefever by Lee Hope is a very emotional novel about a middle-aged woman named Nikki who has a passion for excelling at showing in the sport of three-phase eventing. To attain her goal, since she knows she needs help due to her fear, her wealthy husband hires a trainer, Gabe, who admires her spirit and understands her fear since he is unable to compete after a nasty fall. But their spouses, Cliff and Carla, are jealous of the relationship that escalates as Nikki climbs the ranks in her show standings.

This is a well-written, exciting novel, but it has deep meanings, sexual tension and symbolism that may not be understood by all, especially children.
