- Buy a Horse Book Day!
Help me in celebrating a new holiday, Buy a Horse Book Day! Trafalgar Square Books, the leading publisher of equestrian books and DVDs, and Heels Down Spark, the daily equestrian newsletter, joined forces this year to declare May 10 “Buy a Horse Book Day.” As a horse book author and publisher, I was invited to participate.
Looking for recommendations? Here are a few.
1. Valerie Ormond’s Horse Book Reviews
2. The Shepherd.com’s recommendations:
- Audrey Pavia on the best books on remarkable horses.
- Troon Harrison on the best middle-grade books about brave kids and horses.
- Alexandra Kurland on the best books for training horses.
- Jean O’Malley Halley on the best books about human relationships with other animals.
3. I’m submitting my five recommendations for the Shepherd.com this month and recommending these horse book authors and their books:
- Sasscer Hill – Racehorse mysteries
- Carly Kade – Equestrian Western romance, and her podcast is amazing interviewing horse book authors – Equestrian Author Spotlight Podcast – CARLY KADE CREATIVE: FOR THE LOVE OF HORSE BOOKS
- Brittney Joy – Young Adult
- Sharon Roberts – Children’s and Middle Grade – Founder of Aging Horsewomen Intl. ™ – a group with over 57,000 members!
- Robin Hutton – Non-Fiction History – watch the video about her story here! Author Robin Hutton on Her Book “Sgt. Reckless: America’s War Horse” – YouTube
I hope you enjoy the day and might find a new horse story to read! @HorseandRiderBooks and @HeelsDownMag #BuyAHorseBookDay
