I'm reading Horse Heaven by Jane Smiley and it's pretty good. :) She weaves a beautiful story line.

There's a website called ponydom.com that lists horse books. It's pretty useful because it ranks them in terms of amount and accuracy of horse content:

Have you read War Horse or the Snowman story? I think it's called "The $80 Champion." I just got War Horse, but I've heard from other riders that the Snowman story isn't that great, it doesn't sound like the writer is very horsey maybe? Plus it spends a lot of time on history. But I'd still like to read it because he's a horse who was pretty famous back then. So if anyone's read it, let me know if it was good!

Try read Susan Richards books, I am reading her book Saddled right now and it's about an alcoholic women going through a divorce were she is being abused and how she recovers from her acholism with her horse. It would be a great book for an adult. She has another good book also about rescuing a horse and going through another divorce.

I loved Horse Heaven by Jane Smiley, probably the best portrayal of what TB racing is really like I've every read.

Wild Ride by Anne Auerbach is non-fiction, but a terrific read none the less.

I'm a big fan of Dick Francis. I've read almost every one minus a few older ones that I haven't found or picked up over the years. Most are racing based, but good suspense books based on the scandals and not so pleasant side of the horse world. My personal favorite is "Whip Hand".

About what I said earlier, I actually started reading War Horse and realized it's a kid's book, so forget I mentioned it! Somehow I was never able to get into the Dick Francis ones, maybe I should try again now that I'm older.

How about Traveller, by Richard Adams. (He wrote Watership Down, among others).

Traveller is Robert E. Lee's horse during the civil war, and the story is told through the horse's eyes. It's a great book. I haven't read it for years because I lost my copy. I might have to find another one!

I'm not usually a big fan of older books but this one sounds interesting, I'd like to hear about what things look like through the horse's eyes. I did love Black Beauty and it was like that. And I'm not sure, has anyone mentioned Blaze of Glory yet? It's mostly a romance, but between riders, and it's my new fave!

I found THIS book on vacation many years ago.
Horse Tradin' by Ben K. Green
The best story in it IMHO is called, "The Easter Lily."
