This is the story of an aristocratic thoroughbred horse, born in the depths of winter in Ireland. From a quiet beginning, he goes onto tell of his life - hopes and fears, scaling the heights of fame, and plunging into the depths of obscurity. Square Moon starts his racing career on the flat and then moves on to jumping. His successes take him to England, Ireland, and also Italy. However, like thousands of horses before anad after him, winning the biggest races eludes him. So his life takes a different path to suit his new owners. The sheer joy of a racehorse's life and training is traced, with humour and wit, and more than a touch of tragedy. This story will be a pleasure to anyone who knows that life, and an eye-opener to those who don't.

Rebecca Bowden was brought up in Suffolk in England, though at the age of eight was sent to boarding school in Dorset for four years, where she spent every spare moment in the stables. On leaving school at eighteen, she went on to study dressage, training in England and on the continent. A visit to Ireland in 1996 turned into a permanent stay and she now lives in Co. Kildare. Since being here she has worked in the horse transport industry as well as in racing yards, and these jobs have given her the background for this story.
