Books to fire the spirits of the equine-inclined.

Whether jodhpurs are your thing or you prefer to admire from a distance, horses evoke human emotions with an intensity rivalled by few other animals. From Anna Sewell’s 1887 children’s classic Black Beauty to John Steinbeck’s The Red Pony and Morris Gleitzman’s Loyal Creatures, stories about horses continue to capture the imaginations of readers old and young. Here are some books where the ponies play much more than supporting roles.
