~Horse Book Recommentdations~

I saw the post about a book recommendation and I decided to start a thread you can post the horse books that you like the most.. there is two categories.. 1. Horse Facts 2. Horse Stories..

I am wanting to start reading more but I have found that I read alot more and get alot more out of a book about horses so can yall give me some good titles then I will chose one or all to read. Thanks!!!

There was a book at the library in germany that I checked out about once a month, it was the history of thourobred horse racing, it was a fact book that was hundreds of pages thick and told the stories and stats of just about every horse to race in america. I wish I knew the name of that book, it got me through 3 years of very limited supply of reading materials!

I read a book called a cowboys tears that was KIND OF horse related that was really, really good...

I did not like the horse whisperer...

How do you want responses? I should have asked that first, lists of books and authors or commentarys??? Sorry, I love to read....

Horse books......hmmm?
Lol just kidding I want to read more of them too, the ones I've read though:
*Kind of the Wind
*Black beauty
*The Horse Whisperer(i actually never finished this one...the movie ruined it and I couldnt read it anymore)
*The Phantom Stallion books, only one through 4 I think though becuase I couldnt find the fifth one (i think there are like 30 something volumes!)
*Heartland I havent read many of those either...
*The little white horse...its kind of a horse book, its more about the people but the horses play a pretty important role, its really a childrens book though
...i think that's my whole list, I read alot but usually fantasy OH that reminds me I read one about unicorns a really long time ago...but I don't remember the name....
Hope I helped!

Anything by Margeurite Henry!
Black Beauty. If you don't read that book you're being deprvied of the best horse literature ever!
The Black Stallion is also good... I don't think many of the others are that good though.
Smoky the Cowhorse! It's like a western Black Beauty... really good

Wild Horses I Have Known by Hope Ryden
Spirit of the Horse. Really pretty horses of many breeds. Bob Langrish does the photography, though :/ I guess he's okay
