Fiction - "Horseplay" by Renee Singer. Very funny book about a dressage student. Even some of my non-horsey friends have loved it.

Saddle Club and Heartland were always my favorites, but I love all the ideas of books on here! Definitely going to try and read some of these that I have never heard of! Thanks everyone!

Fiction: Growing up I loved (and still love) sooo many books/series.....
Black Stallion, Thoroughbred & Saddle Club series, Misty, King of the Wind....i am sure I am forgetting some here.

Non-fiction: the one I am currently (re)reading is Ruffian: Burning from the start by Jane Schwartz.

I LOVED the Thoroughbred series! I actually just re-read #1-20 a few months ago just for the fun of it. :) It is interesting to read them as an adult but I still enjoyed them just as much!

I liked the Heartland series (the show, too! The show is more grown-up-y than the books), I read one book from the Phantom Stallion Series, King Of the Wind, Black Beauty, Born to Trot, Mustang, the Sonrise Farm Series, Fury-Stallion of Broken Wheel Ranch, and the Black Stallion Mystery. I'm sure I'm forgetting some. =]

I really like the show Heartland, which is loosly based off the books (it didn't end, but the books did.) The show is wayy better, though.

I pretty much read any horse chapter book, no matter what reading level it's supposed to be for. XD

I want to read My Friend Flicka.

Ok, will definitely have to add some of these to my list. I still have the entire Black Stallion series I had as a teenager (almost 40 now, lol), as well as many of Marguerite Henry's books. Sad to say, I also still have my Breyer's that go along with these books. As for non-fiction, I love going through my Encyclopedia of the Horse, and Western Horseman magazines for new ideas on how I can be a better rider and owner.
