Adult Horse books

Hey everybody, I was curious if anybody has read any good horse books that are written more for adults, not adolescent girls. While I certainly loved the those books as I was growing up, I would like a more challenging read now. I don't mean "adult" wink wink, I just mean adult as in a harder read and thicker plot.

I have read Riding Lessons, Flying Changes, and Horseplay. I liked them and would like to read more like them, but something more challenging than that would be great.

Curious to read what you all come up with!

Not exactly horse but I love the Outfoxed series by Rita Mae Brown.

Subbing, as I would love a good read.

I started out reading All the Pretty Horses, but just couldn't get into it. It is a classic, though.

Oh! Another one is "Hotblood" it's a book about the disappearance of the Brach heiress and the dirty side of the horse world. All true, much is heartbreaking, but an awesome read.

I need some too. I read a romance horse book, called 8 Seconds ( will look the title up tomorrow), it was a good read. I know many people who had liked it.

Black Beauty (the actual classic!) was a wonderful book, told completely from the viewpoint of the horse himself And if you have a smartphone, the Amazon Kindle has it as a free download!

Did you read Water For Elephants? By the same author who wrote the three books you mentioned. GOOD book! Try Dick Francis. He wrote some good ones... but they only involved horses as a by product of his story line. I'd also recommend Chicken Soup for the Horse Lover's Soul. And there is a book in the Children's/Teen's section called The Blood Red Horse, it's a trilogy. I loved (!) those books and don't really believe that the writer solely targeted the younger folks for them. I could never find the last one in that series... : (

Water for Elephants was really good. I love Sara Gruehn. She certainly has a love for animals, all kinds. I tried reading Dick Francis but couldn't get into it. Just not my style. I do like thrillers, but they have to have a strong relationship backstory. I'll have to look up The Blood Red Horse. Thanks
