    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.

    Maybe they're also why I'm in the racing biz now... http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...s/winkgrin.gif

    Okay, for some of you http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...ilies/uhoh.gif more mature posters:
    Does anyone else remember a series called "Timber Trail Riders"? It centered around a riding academy with incredible facilities, yet somehow affordable for "regular" kids. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...n_rolleyes.gif Each book featured a different kid and story mostly centered on the stable but some about trips they took (like to a hollywood movie with horses!) Characters from other books would often be secondary characters.
    How come I didnt know any "regular kids" or riding stables like that? http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...s/winkgrin.gif

    duuuh...ohhhhhh http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...s/winkgrin.gif

    *Onyx just catching on now** supposed lowered brain function has something to do with spending hours reading kid's series***

    So gully's, you must be (your initials must be..) "KBB"... ah now I get it http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif

    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.

    A book that I really loved was "A Horse and his Boy" (Narnia series). The (talking) horse teaches the kid how to ride.

    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
