Trophies: An Equestrian Romance by Ainslie Sheridan

Trophies takes you into to the true heart of the horse world, its intrigues, money, cut-throat competition, triumphs, and tragedies. In its details of struggle, betrayal, loss, and love, it's one of the most realistic novels ever published about equine sport and the personalities who drive it.

Diana Winston has a dream—to rise to the top of this sport. But obstacles over five feet high and six feet wide are not her only hurdles. With no bankroll and no family, she has but two friends. Olympic gold medal winner Jim Williams helps her navigate the world of the rich and entitled while guarding a secret that will break Diana’s heart.

The second friend is Dr. Steve Rodriguez. A renowned Mexican virologist, he lost everything, including loved ones, in the 1985 Mexico City earthquake. Overwhelmed with guilt and depression, he enters the United States illegally and, concealing his past, takes up a lowly position as a groom. Drawn to Diana's energy and talent, he presents her with a slaughter-bound stallion, declaring that this horse can take her to the pinnacle of show jumping.

As Diana presses ahead at a Grand Prix event in Newport, she meets Dr. Bill Stanford, a brilliant neurosurgeon and horse show enthusiast. Bill is deeply attracted to her and determines he must radically change his personal and professional life.

The early AIDS epidemic is raging and Diana finds herself drawn into the terrifying world of one of its victims.

A classic novel of the horse world, originally released by Signet/New American Library, Trophies is an action-filled romance that brings together the worlds of show jumping and medicine, as well as the compelling characters who inhabit them.
