Interested in reading about horses?

This blog is all about horse books which are available on Amazon, mainly as eBooks for your Kindle but there are also paper books as well. Each day, free eBooks are updated for that day - grab them quick (no limit on the number given away on the day it is free). If you don't have a Kindle but want a free Kindle reading app from Amazon, click the link below (yes, it is free). It only takes a few minutes to get one on your computer, laptop, Android, iPhone or iPad and allows you to access the million or so eBooks available on Amazon. All links on this blog are safe ones which will only take you to Amazon.

Please let your friends and forums know about this blog - the more books that can be given away, the more the authors are promoted, which is why they agree to make them free for a few days. (And if you don't have a Kindle... consider one - I bought one for me, one for my daughter and a third for my 75 year old mother, and I linked the accounts so that every book I buy or pick up for free can be put on any or all Kindles. All of us love our Kindles!)

The horse trainer for War Horse is visiting today!
(Free books today - next post down.)
I have to feature this book today as the lady who trained the horses for the movie, War Horse,  Zelie Bullen, is coming here today to see our horses: Horses Of Gold . It is a lovely, emotional story, along the lines of a modern day Black Beauty as the wonderful Joey changes hands several times during the course of war. The scene on the battlefield where Joey is loose and goes through the razor wire is every horse person's nightmare, and I know that scene in the movie had even the hardest hearts crying. Zelie trained those horses beautifully - if you see the movie, consider the calmness, trust and contentment in their faces - none of fear or nervousness that marked some of the 'trained' horses in movies of long ago. Australian readers will recognise the name 'Bullen' in relation to the circus - and, yes, same family, just with horse training. It's only $4.99 and is great reading for all ages.
