Dick Francis: Longshot (USA 1992)

From the Publisher:
His agent has always known that John Kendall, writer of travel guides to harsh terrains, is impulsive. But taking an assignment because he needs money hardly seems a rash act, as Kendall ventures to rural England to interview a successful racehorse trainer. But the perils described in his survival manuals pale next to the dangers in the English countryside. "Impulse will kill you one of these days," his agent had warned. Kendall should have listened, but he didn't--not by a longshot...
