Just read a great book!

I have not had much exposure to dressage but it did not matter when reading this book. "Collective Marks" by Nancy N. Feldman. I thought it was so well written. I stayed up way too late at night because I could not put it down.
I would love to hear some of your favorite horse related books.

I recently read "Another Kind of Cowboy". I just could NOT put it down! It was, in my opinion, amazing. I'll have to read Collective Marks! I've been having trouble finding horse-related books recently :).

Thanks, I will get that one. I have read quite a few horse related books if you want the names. But honestly most of them were not so great. Only the subject matter made them interesting.

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!

Exactly, we want interesting fiction with some accurate horse stuff along the way.
I already finished Another Kind of Cowboy! Got it from the library and read it in three days. Stayed up way too late and did not want to get up the next morning for work. Thanks for the recommendation.

I love "Not By Accident" by Samantha Dunn.. I've read it many many times! Very inspiring

Now this is something I could talk about all day! I love to read and I love horses :0)
Chosen by a Horse by Susan Richards
Great story, but get out the kleenex
The Horse Whisperer by Nicholas Evans
What a great book!
Ridding Lessons by Sara Gruen
I thought this was an alright book. The story was good, but not a book you end feeling good.
That's all I can think of for right now. I've already looked into getting the books you suggested

Thanks for more ideas.
