A Master Reading List...

A little light reading.
I am addicted to horses.  I spend as much time as I can with them.  When I am not with them I like to watch them, either on any of over 40 DVDs I have, or my FEI TV subscription, or on USEF Network.  When I am not watching them, I am reading about them, either in the 5 magazines I subscribe to, or in one of the 30+ books I own, or on various and sundry websites.

Single-minded much?  One-dimensional?  Maybe.  However, when you are passionate about something you immerse yourself in it as much as possible, right?

Anyway, for Christmas I received several Barnes & Noble gift cards, and was messing about on the internet researching equestrian books on which to spend them.

While I was touring the Interwebz, I came across these articles in The Horse magazine, an Australian publication.  If you're anything like me and love to read about horses and the great equestrian masters, you might enjoy them as much as I did.

Happy reading!

  1. Me too... and I'm a voyeur too!

  2. I definitely can relate! If I am not preparing for my next ride or writing about it, I can usually be found reading a riding book / magazine or watching a horse-related TV show (Heartland, etc) or movie. I do feel like it is a bit one-dimensional and I should branch out, but nothing really catches my interest in the same way!

  3. Thanks so much for sharing these. Love, love, love George Morris!

  4. Great reads!! Thank you for sharing, one horse addict to another :)

  5. Great list! I'm obsessed too. People don't get it ;)
