Over my many years of being obsessed with horses, I have come across a few priceless books that I feel are my all-time favorites... what are your favorite horsey books?

A-Z of Horse Diseases and Health Problems
By Tim Hawcroft

Anything and everything that could ever go wrong with your horse is in this book.

The Usborne Complete Book of Riding and Pony Care
This book is an awesome reference and has ALL the basics covered... no matter how experienced you are, there is something in this book for you.

Collins: Need To Know? Horse and Pony Care
This is pretty much a more advanced (but still basic) version of Usborne Riding and Pony Care.

Horse Crazy

This girl knows what it's like to be a horse-crazy kid... and she's put facts, crafts, breed profiles, interviews and more into one adorable, informative book.
