I continue with my primary school reads (aged up to 11 for my American friends!) with my next topic which was my horse phase! As I kid I loved horses and would emerse myself in books and series devoted to horses! I joined a school book club which parents could order books from and have them delivered to the school. Any other UK readers remember the Chip Book Club and it's yearly diaries?!!!
Here are some of the ones I read. The Pullein-Thompson sisters were very popular at that time in the UK but worldwide horses appealed to me! I was a HUGE fan of the Silver Brumby series!
The cover of Queen Rider is the one that I read as a kid and I recently reread it, now published with the author's real name Alan Davidson. I used to read horse short story anthologies as well. In my first year of secondary school I read the last book in my horse phase, a book called The Race which was more adult than I'd previously looked at. I loved that book and read it constantly that year. A friend tracked down a copy for me a couple of years ago and I plan to reread it!
Anyone else have a horse phase growing up? What are your favourite horse related stories?
