My Mental Book Stack

Here’s what’s currently on my “To Read” list:

Non-Fiction:

Finding My Distance:  A Year in the Life of a Three Day Eventer (Julia Wendell):  This book is loooong, but I hear it’s really good.

Chosen By A Horse (Susan Richards):  An account of the horses Richards rescued.  Of course I’m a total sucker for a rescue project, so I will be reading this book and living vicariously through Richards.

Renegade Champion:  The Unlikely Rise of Fitzrada (Richard R. Rust):  This is about one of the first women to compete at the International levels in show jumping and her challenging horse.  Pretty much a must read, if you ask me!

Horses Never Lie:  The Art of Passive Leadership (Mark Rashid):  This is another book  based on the idea a Natural Horsemanship, so I definitely want to see what Rashid’s take is.

How Good Riders Get Good:  Daily Choices that Lead to Success in Any Equestrian Sport (Denny Emerson):  I am hoping this book will give me the secret to finally moving up a level!  And Denny Emerson is someone I’ve long admired…

 

Fiction:

A Good Horse (Jane Smiley):  Jane Smiley stirred up quite a controversy when, after writing this book, she sent one of the horses featured in it to the auction.  Yikes.  But word on the street is it wasn’t a “livestock auction” (where killer buyers go) but a Thoroughbred auction.

The Dressage Chronicles (Karen McGoldrick):  This is written by a USDF gold medalist so I know the horse stuff will be accurate.

Under Orders (Dick Francis):  I’ve never read any Dick Francis.  This seems very, very wrong.  Definitely a situation I must rectify.

Riders (Jilly Cooper):  Frankly, the cover of this book makes me want to vomit.  But maybe it’s not as terrible as the cover would suggest?
