The Trouble with Being a Horse by Emily Edwards has an interesting perspective - the viewpoint of a human in a horses' body!
This delightful and educational fantasy is part Wizard of Oz (there's no place like home) and Black Beauty (not all horse owners are nice) and I thoroughly enjoyed the story. I was even surprised by the ending; I thought the young horse lover, Olivia, would return to her human body - but how? I won't ruin it for you!
This is a "must read" for young horse enthusiasts because it also teaches them the importance of communication with the horse when working around and riding them.

Rescue Me by Toni Leland is a fantastic read. What an awesome concept! A woman and horses all need rescuing - and a hero comes to the rescue!
Julia Dorsey overcomes her fear of her husband and changes her life, although sacrificing her passion for a special Morgan Horse. In her new life, she meets a kind truck driver and a woman who rescues horses. Julia learns about true friendship, love and trust.
The story is written with a realistic insight to both abused women and horses. The author builds the tension to a dramatic climax, and leaves you cheering in the end.

Playing With Lukas by Karen Murdock of Chino Hills, California is a heartwarming memoir of a woman and her horse.
Lukas is a Thoroughbred who was once considered a throwaway due to his unruly behavior. However, Murdock unlocked the gelding’s tractable personality through unconventional training. Now, Lukas is an equine celebrity and named The World’s Smartest Horse with numerous tricks in his repertoire.
Lukas is featured in my Beloved Horses in Second Careers, but this book gives much more detail about the early life of Karen, how she found Lukas and how she was able to turn him into a true partner.
I met Karen last month at the Certified Horsemen's Association conference in Florida where we were both presenters, and I was very impressed with her way of communicating with a local horse in her program, one she had never met. She is a talented trainer as well as an author.
