A great book I read twice while in high school is Perdita by Isabelle Holland. It is out of print but I know ther are copies out there. It's a very horsey book with some mild romance and a mystery plotline. Awesome book!
There wasa book called, i believe, "theshow gypsies", which i had seen reviewedin COTH, it had more todowith jumpers andwasdefinitely fiction.also, "The year of the horse", if you can still find itis an indictment of the equitation division, I believe that Disneymade a movie based on it. aall i remember is agrey horse named "Aspercel', does anyone remember the name of the movie?i don't know that i ever saw it in full, only certain jumping scenes. Try "The horse in the grey flannel suit", though the book had the other title "yearof the horse". has Jody jaffee written any?I haveeeral themes and "plots'i would like to suggesttoher ;

If I remember correctly it was mostly about a teenaged girl with amnesia who starts to work at a horse farm, and starts to fall in love with the owner/trainer. There is a little bit about showing in it, but not much. Cute book though. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif
There is a second "Year of the Horse" by Diana Walker that has a girl who meets her horsey neighbor and discovers the show circuit. It is very good, but it is not the same book that goes with "The Horse in the Grey Flannel Suit."
