Disclaimer: I’m friends with the author and madly in love with all her beautiful white horses.

The e-book is a writer’s guide to horses, covering everything from the basics of anatomy and riding to modern horse breeding and training to horse issues in historical or fantasy settings to the psychology of horses and people who deal with them. Informally written, extremely easy to read, and very, very useful. Probably too basic for anyone who already knows a lot about horses, but a great resource for the rest of us.

Writing Horses: The Fine Art of Getting It Right

To see some of those horse-writing principles put into action, check out “Caitlin Brennan’s” House of the Star, a charming fantasy for girls who love horses, which combines princesses and horses who can walk the roads between worlds with an extremely realistic (apart from the magic) Arizona horse ranch setting.
