Thumbs up Chosen By A Horse- by Susan Richards.(Book Recommendation)

First off, I didn't know where to put this so I threw it here lol.
I just finished this book, Choosen By A Horse. It was Amazing!
I finished it in 2 days, because I just couldn't put it down..
It's about a woman.. who saves a mal-treated Standard bred, She helped the horse.. but in a way the horse helped her.. and helped her get threw things that she hasn't really faced in years... Just read it

Its really a great book and I recommend it to anyone with the love of horses..

An amazing book, and a tear jerker at times...
If you have read it... give your thought about it too.

The storyline about her and the mare slayed me-I cried so much.

It's was frustrating though, I kept getting distracted with what I felt was her incredibly whiny way of talking about her life.

I read this book also I think I read it about 2-3 times . I REALLY liked it. I hated the part when the dude took the foals back thought . It irritated me.

While reading her book, I was in the process of rescuing a TB. I could relate to a lot of what she was saying. Read it with a box of tissues by your side. I truly believe horses have the strength and courage most humans lack

I read this book as well.
It was an amazing story! I cried at some parts and laughed at others (not in a ha ha way, but hehe my horses do that too, or my horse is JUST like that!)

I definitely recommend this book to anyone!
