Well, maybe your horse would enjoy some alfalfa or something. However and whenever you read, here are some great books to add to your list for this summer!!

What do you get when you pair a scientist with a cowboy? Well, a really interesting and informative book about how horses’ brains work. Not just for trainers, but for anyone who is around horses can benefit from reading this book. When we understand how our horse’s brains operate, we can be better communicate with them. I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It’s a must read!
Marguerite, Misty and Me
Written by: Susan Friedland
If you’re a Marguerite Henry fan then I think this book might really interest you! Written by a fellow blogger I am looking forward to it. Available this summer! You can pre-order your copy now!
Misty of Chincoteague
Written by: Marguerite Henry
If you haven’t read this beloved classic, then perhaps you’d like to read it before you read Marguerite, Misty, and Me. It’s a short, easy read with beautiful illustrations. Yes, technically, it is classified for young readers, but it is a story that is based on real people, places, and events. In my opinion, a must read for horse lovers.
The Blessed Entrepreneur
Written by: Billy Sticker
“The church has done a great job teaching us how to give, but a poor job teaching us how to earn.” – Billy Stickler, The Blessed Entrepreneur
Money isn’t evil, rather the love of money is. We can do more for the kingdom of God with money than without, Sticker says in this book. I’m excited to dive into this book and learn more about helping my business and learning about God’s principles. Not just giving, but earning for God’s glory!
Many horse people are business owners, so I thought it would be a good one for lots of folks!
Give me Mountains for my horses
Written by: Tom Reed
I came across this book, and the title just got me! You know, when a book just calls to you. I haven’t read it yet, but I’m looking forward to the stories of the beauty of the backcountry and the moments of unforgettableness. Whether those stories be surviving mishaps or taking in God’s creation alongside your horses.

This is a book that keeps popping up and I haven’t gotten around to reading it. So, I am finally adding it to my summer reading list. The book is just what it sounds like it is, forming good habits and breaking bad ones. This can help you in life and in your horsemanship. Whether it be poor time management or negative self-talk. Trading bad habits for good ones will make us healthier people.
