There is a book called The Perfect Horse, and its about saving Lippizaners during WWII and Hitler's plan to extend "purifying" methods into even the horse industry. Based on a true story, I believe.



I read this. It's a good one. The book on Sea Biscuit is also good. I really really recommend Sgt Reckless if you like horses and military history. You will never look at horses the same again after you read it. Absolutely uplifiting and gut wrenching at the same time. Amazing, real life little mare who played a pivotal role in the Korean War.


I read The Perfect Horse and Sgt Reckless this past couple weeks thanks to the suggestions on this thread so I thought I would bump it up if anyone else wants suggestions for the last couple weeks of summer!

I'm going to bump this up as I've cleaned everyhing I can in my house and backyard and now I'm onto reading books lol.

I'll also add one to this that I really enjoyed about quarter horse racing and the drug cartel- Bloodlines by Melissa Del Bosque.

Any and all books from Gospel Horse Series by Lynn Baber. 

 

She was a motivaltional speaker before she became a horse trainer and it shows through her writing. She is a Christian. I've seen her work with horses in person, and it is inspiring!

 

You can order on Amazon, but also in Weatherford TX  they are sold at Horseman's Supply and Teskey's.

If you like fiction - I really like books by John Sanford   He has a series featuring Lucas Davenport and one with Virgil Flowers. They are basically cops/marshalls after bad guys. Has a midwestern feel and attitude. Sometimes dry - sometimes a smartass. Does use bad words - not for prudes/kids, but some of the things he comes up will crack you up. Usually really good plots. Unfortunatly, the book out now, Neon Moon, I think is one of his weakest out of all he's wrote. Its worth finding one of his previous ones.

I also like the Harry Bosch series by Micheal Connelly. He's a detective. And a smartass.

I like Nelson Demille's series about John Corey. Ironically another detective series. I've read The Lions Game at least 4 times.

I usually don't like dective/cop type books. I wouldn't give you 2 cents for a James Patterson book. So if you like his style, these might not be for you. All the lead characters have similar styles, so if you like one writer, you would probably like the others.

I love Outlander too.  Feel like I miss a lot not being able to always understand the Scottish brogue.

I'm almost done with the 2nd book. I'm not sure if I'll keep reading them or just start watching the show. 

I don't mind the books they're just so long!

I'm glad they're long! Makes me think I'm getting my money's worth because I read so fast! I'm 500 pages into the 2nd book and just bought it sun night

I think it helps because I watched the show too. So far the show follows pretty dang close I think, at least from what I've read

The actors are amazing.  It's just a bummer having to wait a whole year between seasons.  I've never read the books but senior eyes don't enjoy reading like when you're a youngster.

I have found it's easier to listen to it on audible, so I listen during my commute to and from work. That's probably why it's taken me so long to get through it. 

When I started th 1st book I didn't realize there were so many in the series.

I am trying out books listed on this post.  I like good books, just usually don't have the time.  Since this post, I read The Perfect Horse and Beneath a Scarlet Sky.  Oh my goodness, Beneath a Scarlet Sky is the best book I've read in a long while.  For it to be a true story, I couldn't put it down!  Highly recommend that one.
