My Wild Ride by Susan Bump

My Wild Ride by Susan Bump

My Wild Ride by Susan Bump is the perfect book for horse racing fans to catch an inside glimpse of the triumph and tribulations of a successful trainer.

My Wild Ride is a compelling story chronicling the life of author Susan Bump from her difficult childhood, to her life as a horse trainer and then onto her human and animal rights activism.

Stated reader Debbie Joswick said, “My Wild Ride is a must read for those who are warmed by feel-good animal stories, who are curious about life at the track, who are challenged by a past that holds them back from experiencing their own self-worth!”

Trixie Hammer of Lady and The Track recently completed My Wild Ride by Susan Bump and said, “This book reminds me that we all have the option to make good in the world by helping others, in Susan’s case by helping animals, regardless of the negativity endured as a child.” Trixie added, “As a horse racing fan, it’s interesting to read about the controversial behind-the-scenes happenings in the sport that I never knew existed.”

Though the story at times can be sad and tragic as we get a glimpse into Susan’s dysfunctional family and childhood as the daughter of two alcoholic parents, the story actually proves to be uplifting and triumphant. Bump’s story is a very personal story that draws the reader in as the reader watches Bump struggle with self-esteem and a sense of self-worth. The story gets even deeper and more compelling as we watch Bump in the pursuit and eventual realization of her dream. Bump is able to climb out of her rocky childhood and pursue and fulfill her dream of training Thoroughbred racehorses.

Susan Bump had a successful career breaking and training horses for over 30 years and My Wild Ride gives the reader a great glimpse into the life of horse racing and life on the race track. The book then documents Susan Bump’s eventual call into animal rights activism as she feels convicted by her experiences in the horse training world, making My Wild Ride a heart-warming and encouraging story. My Wild Ride hit the #2 spot in the e-book horse section of the Amazon Kindle Store. The print version of My Wild Ride is now in stock available direct from the publisher at and is also available through major retailers such as Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Books-A-Million.
