Wow... I have up to like 60 I think, and most of the Thoroughbred books.. I think it was 14 or so that the writing went downhill- but Loved the TBred books more than anything! I still pull them out when I need a thoughtless read.
I just finished Riding Class. Did that thing with the autistic kid really happen? (asking b/c I did work with autistic kids and we did used to get nice surprise breakthroughs like that)
I actually had one autistic little boy in lessons, who mother (horrid cow) became irate when he started reacting very well to me and the horses and performing at his own age level. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...n_rolleyes.gif
Onyx--yep, I wasn't a personal witness, but a therapeutic riding instructor at a place near where I used to live had an autistic rider who would talk to the horses, though not to people.
And now you know who I really am! I still can't believe those Gold Medal books were anybody's favorites. I wrote 14, probably couldn't come up with all the titles now, but another that I liked was Endurance Ride.
I remember the Timber Trail Riders! I think I have all the books too! Man, now I'll have to go look and make sure.

Well for those of you who have not rented the "saddle clud movie" don't bother! hahaha.. It's just a bunch of episode's put together.. Not worth the $0.99 to rent it! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_razz.gif And yes.. I am 21 and I just rented it last summer with my best friend (also a horse freak.. of course!)
Although... I am pretty mad that I was unaware of this 8 hour long SC marathon.. I totally would have watched it! Sometimes the show drives me nuts, BUT I still watch it because it's horses.. and there aren't too many shows with horses in the whole thing (more or less..)
I loved "A horse and His Boy" by C.S. Lewis, as well. I still have my very worn copies of the whole Narnia series. That's how I came up with my farm name, when I was around 8!
You know its been a long cold winter, when all the adults are re-reading all of their childhood favorites. What fun! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif
