For something a little bit different I am going to try to list all of the books I have read over the years that were about horses or I read them because I thought they were about horses. Believe me when I say this is no easy task…but here goes:
The Black Stallion
The Young Black Stallion
The Black Stallion and Flame
Misty of Chincoteague
Stormy, Misty’s Foal
A really good portion of the “Saddle Club” series*
*I used to “steal” these from my elementary school library because I didn’t want to go through the hassle of checking them out because I sometimes read up to three of these books a day during class. I returned them all, I just never checked them out. I know…nerd alert. This won’t be the last.
Many of the early “Thoroughbred” series
The Boy on a Black Horse
The Immortals Quartet*
*Nerd alert number two…also not the last. I absolutely LOVED these books. I have probably read the book Wild Magic 40 times cover to cover.
The Song of the Lioness Quartet
Justin Morgan Had a Horse
King of The Wind
The Big Book of Horses*
*and other coffee table/ encyclopedia/ reference books I considered my Bibles
The Horse Boy
The Horse Whisperer
A good number of Dick Francis books
The Man Who Listens to Horses*
*I loved this book- couldn’t put it down. I brought it to my office to read over my lunch break.
Chosen by a Horse
The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses*
*This entire book was so beautifully illustated. Here is the cover art for your enjoyment:
whew…and probably many more! But I’m impressed- that was a pretty good list if I do say so myself!
