What to Read Wednesday: Horse Books for Kids

The Best Horse Books for Kids

This blog uses affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.

When I was ten, my best friend Charlotte, who was obsessed with horses, taught me how to play a horse game she had invented. I had never actually been on a horse, and I don’t think I had ever even been close to a ‘real’ horse, but her enthusiasm rubbed off on me, and I joined in her game. We created horse albums that summer, and we would spend hours coming up with names for them and recording details about them–and then our imaginary friends joined us in the backyard to be corralled and petted, groomed and ridden. This simple game stretched our imaginations and only required some notebook paper and pencils to create.

Is your child a horse nut like Charlotte? If so, then this week’s What to Read is just for him or her! I’ve compiled some of the best horse books for kids, with some of our all time favorites. If you want to explore this theme even more, scroll down to get our free printable horse themed activity pack. If your child wants to create a horse album of their own, we’ve created a fill-in sheet as part of the printable pack. Be sure to grab one below.

Happy reading!

    I read my share of horse books when I was a kid and even worked at a horse camp, but I was always more interesting in grooming them and mucking out stalls than riding them (although I did that, too). My little gal’s a bit small yet to get on a horse, so we’ll see how she feels about the animals in a few years!

      They are such beautiful animals, but the couple of times I’ve ridden, I felt so nervous to be up so high! They are much taller than I expected.
