    You could probably also find the ones about the famous race horses... I always found them interesting. Like Cigar, Secretariat or Seabiscuit. But I'm not sure if those are the titles.

    Not sure if you are only interested in fiction, but Riding With Reagan was a really good book. Very interesting to read about how the secret service had to tweak many of their protocols and best practices to accomodate Reagan's riding. He loved horses.

    Dammit you guys! Now that I mentioned Hotblood I have to go back and read it again - such an interesting book, except the "no real ending" part. Lol.

    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!
    ON THE BACK OF A HORSE: Harnessing the Healing Power of the Human-Equine Bond, or NO SECRET SO CLOSE, both by Claire Dorotik, are great

    Hi GoldSahara!
    If you think you'd be interested in a suspenseful (adult) mystery series set in the horse world, check out Mystery Author Kit Ehrman - Home. The titles are available on Amazon.com in hardcover, paperback, and as e-books. The e-books are $2.99. The paperbacks (and hardcovers) can be purchased used, too, probably inexpensively. They also might be at your local library.

    Cheers!

    I'm glad to be reading some of these too! Have you read the Jilly Cooper books? I know they're more society scandal types set in the horse world, but on the plus side, they're long and there are 3 of them (Riders, Polo and the latest, Jump). The Perfect Distance is a YA book but I read it as and adult and found it interesting, especially if you're into Hunter/jumpers. And my own book, though considered to be for late teens (14+), is getting quite a few reviews from adult women. It's called Blaze of Glory; I'm including the Amazon link below in case you're interested.
