The usual problem is that people write horse related fiction to a formula...you know the sort of thing: feisty girl trains no-hoper horse against all odds to win....yada yada yada...oh, did I for get to mention the bad boy (good at heart) love interest?
Personally, I started as a writer by loving sci fi and fantasy and wanting to write for young adults in that genre.
I spend most of my time around horses so I suppose it was natural for them to wind up as central in what otherwise are paranormal thrillers.
I think too many authors just write wish fulfilment stuff in the 'horse fiction' sub genre, instead of interesting books that just happen feature horses!
