I am a big fan of reading and have read tons of books on horses, breeding, caring for your horse, barns/stalls, barrel racing etc. I really want to read a novel that horse related (of course ;) lol). Any suggestions?
It kind of depends on what reading level you are. The horse Whisperer by Nicholas Sparks was really good. The accident scene was very realistic and the descriptive portions were pretty good. The "love story" was a little blah and I wasn't crazy about the ending but it was definitely a good read.
My Friend Flicka by Mary O'hara was good. Then comes Thunderhead (Son of Flicka) and then Green Grass of Wyoming. It's a trilogy...
I liked the Walter Farley version of Seabiscuit and all of the Fury of Broken Wheel books... (sorry - I don't know if you are a teen or an adult)
I just recommended this on another thread - "Horseplay" by Judy Reene Singer. If you aren't too familiar with horse trainers you'll really like it and if you are familiar with horse trainers you'll love it! It's a very funny book about a woman who leaves her husband and goes off to live and work for a German dressage trainer. Both the characters and the story are hilarious! Enjoy!!
I'm not sure if any of these are what you are looking for, but I love to read anything I can get my hands on about horses and these are some of my favorites.
