Non-fiction: Riding Logic by Wilhelm Museler and Centered Riding by Sally Swift. Those two books have helped me a ton! Also the USPC Manuals are very good too :)

Not as many fiction horse books that I'm aware of (other than the classics, Misty, Black Beauty, My Friend Flicka, etc.) but I recently read one called Catch Rider by Jennifer Lyne. It was pretty good. I may be 23, but I still read a lot of teen/YA fiction, especially when it comes to horse fiction!

Alright... Due to the popularity of the suggestion, I just bought Chosen by a Horse. I am SO excited to read it but I have my tissues handy as well!

Surprised it has not been mentioned yet, ut Secretariat by William Nack. Such a good writer. If you have seen tv coverage of big races, he narratives alot of the feature stories. It was his book they used for the movie, but the book is better.

You will love it, particularly Nack's description of the famous Belmont.

Just purchased The Faraway Horses & The Eighty-Dollar Champion as well. I am excited to read both of them as I have heard wonderful things! My poor bank account doesn't stand a chance when it comes to horse books!

Non Fiction - The Faraway Horses, The Eighty Dollar Champion, Whole Heart Whole Horse

Fiction - When I was younger, I loved pretty much every horse series ever: Pony Pals, Saddle Club, Heartland, Hoofbeats, Heartland, the Thoroughbred series, Keystone Stables, Canterwood Crest, High Hurdles, Chestnut Ridge. You name it, I read it. Riding Freedom and Paint the Wind by Pam Munoz Ryan. Firehorse by Diane Wilson is one of my very favorites.

I'm having trouble finding fiction horse books now that aren't either unrealistic rainbows-and-unicorn stories or have three pages about horses and a hundred and ninety seven about relationships and drama.

Shy Boy-By Monty Roberts...I'm not sure I 100% believe his story since it's so close to Buck Brannamans, and his family refuses to corroborate it, but it's still a good read.
