Journeys with Horses by Leslie McDonald



Obviously written by a professional horsewoman, Journeys with Horses shares insights about people with a passion for horses. Similar to my Beloved Horses series, this book is a collection of true short stories for all ages of horse lovers. My favorite, the most memorable I think, was Chapter Ten, Gotta Love. A real equine love story!

No Pizza Delivery? by Grace Marshall is about a teen named Ruth who moves with her father and brother to a Missouri farm where her dad wants to start a horse ranch. She's torn between leaving her friends and starting a new life in the country where they have no pizza delivery, but do have beautiful surroundings and a chance to own horses.

This Christian based story teaches many life lessons for a Y/A reader. It is well written and the ending leaves the reader wanting more. It’s the first in a new series entitled, "Horse Haven."

The Diary of a Horse Mad Girl by Katrina Kahler



Another fun and educational young reader's horse book is The Diary of a Horse Mad Girl by Katrina Kahler.

Written like a diary by a soon to be nine-year-old girl in Australia, Abbie, this story explains the joys and a few disasters of horse ownership. Her new pony is named Sparkle and is a palomino. I wonder why there is a bay on the cover? But there are photos included, some of Sparkle as well as other horses and animals on the farm.
