I've loved horses since before I can remember. As soon as I could read, I devoured every horse book I could find. I'm now married with two children, and haven't outgrown either my love for horses or books--especially books about horses. When I discovered Usborne Books, the first thing I did was check out what was available in my favorite subject. I was delighted to find that the clever people at Usborne know we horse-people love to read about our favorite subject! Here are some of my favorite Usborne horse books.

Dictionary of Horses and Ponies is an essential and comprehensive guide to all aspects of horses and ponies. It is of immense value to beginners and experienced riders alike. Includes fascinating information on the evolution of horses, their anatomy and body language, different breeds and the various kinds of riding, competitions and uses to which horses are put. Contains a wealth of practical, reliable advice and superb full-color photographs and illustrations.

Grooming & Stable Management is a guide to help manage the day-to-day care of horses and ponies, whether they live out at grass or in a stable. This book offers lots of advice to keep them well-behaved, healthy and happy.

Also available is a Horses and Ponies Kid Kit. Learn about different horse breeds in this informative kit. The rubber stamps provided can be used to decorate school papers and make greeting cards.
Includes: Stallion, Show Jumper and Mare with Foal stamps with hand-cut wood handles, stamp pad with washable, nontoxic black ink.

One of many fiction titles offered is Midnight Horse. The back cover reads, "Riding at the Hawthorn House trials is all that Kate has dreamed of and this year she's in with a real chance of winning. As she works hard to prepare for the day, it seems nothing will distract her from her goal. But then the mysterious midnight horse rides into Kate's life, and suddenly everything changes. This is the fourth book in a series which follows the day to day drama and exciting adventures of the children and horses of Sandy Lane Stables."

If you are interested in any of these titles, or the many other horse selections Usborne Books offers, visit my website at: and type "horses" in the search field. Happy reading to all you horse lovers out there!
