Snowman by Rutherford G. Montgomery.    This is an inspiring true tale of a horse headed for slaughter that became a world champion jumper.   It is being made into a movie!    I read this book in the eight grade (60's) and have always loved it!



King of the Wind by Margeuritte Henry    Yes - it's a children's book.   Beautifully illustrated, unforgettable story of the origina of the Thoroughbred.


National Velvet by Enid Bagnold   This book was so exciting and inspiring to me as a young girl!


Horse Heaven by Jane Smiley.   This is a great book of fiction told by a woman who clearly knows and loves horses.
