Not fiction but I LOVE the books by Ben Green. I have re-read them many times in the past 25-ish years.

Not kids books but nothing adult in them.

I've kept them in a box for when my younger sister is able to read them!!

Did you get to move up to the Pine Hollow series? It was good, but far too short and ended abruptly, I'm hoping more will be written, but I kind of doubt it. Even at my age, I'll still read them.

Yeah...I've got three or four of them in the box....but I didn't like them as much....and I think I was almost in tears when Pine Hollow burnt down!!

I just finished reading Mark Rashid, A Good Horse is Never A Bad Color.

It is mostly about training horses, but the stories are very interesting and holds your attention. Most of the stories is of his experiences as a young teenager. It a great read, even a teenager would like it.

Mark Rashid does a good job of providing useful advice through narratives of his experiences. I've got his book "Considering the Horse". Reading it is like listening to someone talk of his experiences while sitting around a campfire.

The Canterwood crest series is very good, i read them recently and am 15 :) They are about a girl and her horse charm going to a boarding school and everything that goes on :) I would really recommend this series for her :)

Thank you, dlady. I hope you find it useful. I'm working on another, but I don't know when I will finish. Trying to include as much as possible but in a flowing and coherent progression is very difficult, especially since good riding involves the interaction of so many things at once as well as sensitivity to nuances. There is also the balance of inspiration and discouragement due to the challenge. At the same time, I am working on many new illustrations to help clarify the text.
