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 ive 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 thats 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 dont remember the name....

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
