Horse books - Fiction

I'm in the mood for a really good book. I feel like reading one of those old fashioned underdog horsey stories. It can be a romance, a mystery, anything, even a teen book if it's really good.

I've read all of the classics. I'm looking for one I've never read... any suggestions?

Did you ever read, Frog, The Horse That Knew No Master?

It's one from my childhood, but I've always adored it. Written by a former military cavalry officer. Definitely fiction and maybe a little young, but a good read.

You said you've read the classics, so I'm going to assume you've read the original My Friend Flicka. What about the two sequels to that? Thunderhead, Son of Flicka and The Green Grass of Wyoming.

You probably read the Black Stallion books, but did you read the The Island Stallion ones?

Those are actually my favorites. I loved them. Read them when I was in Germany, over and over, and over again! LOL...

Maybe I can find that Frog book and read it to Max, then we can both enjoy it!

Try Amazon.com. That's where I got my copy.

You are talking about 2 of my favorite things. Books and Horses. So I collect horse stories from the 40's and 50's. Look for the Famous Horse Stories books published by Gosset and Dunlap. One set of my favorites is The Golden Stallion series by Rutherford G. Montgomery.
You might also check out some of the Zane Grey books. Riders of the Purple Sage and Wildfire contain horses, mystery action and romance. How can you go wrong?

I love Smoky the Cowhorse (or any Will James book lol). Of course there's Seabiscuit or the Thoroughbred series (my favs are #3, 19 & 57 ;). Phantom Stallion series isn't bad either.

This thread made me think about a book that I loved as a kid. I'm really hoping someone else has read it/heard of it.

I Rode a Horse of Milk White Jade by Diane Wilson.

It's definitely a kid's book, but it was a really good read. I recommend parents buy it for their children.

I had to go look it up just now, and I found some other books she wrote. I think I'll be checking those out!
