Format: Paperback
In the rush of Christmas shopping, I looked at a copy of "Horse Crazy". I was thinking of a last-minute gift for my school's generous and good-natured receptionist who adores her aging horse. Impulsively, I bought a second copy. Just in case someone showed up at my house with an unexpected gift, I could save face with this book. But instead I left it next to my sofa.

Sometimes I am daunted by books. My intention of being absorbed by a 500 page book are often foiled by multiple preemptions. But this book allows me to disappear into well-written, funny and touching stories written by smart, simpatico women. I especially liked "It's Only a Paper Horse" by Stephanie Losee. My favorite image is when she describes her husband trying to please her horse-obsessed daughter's requests for drawings. She says, "Tom's sketching abilities were limited to the creation of a single cartoon fish, which he drew over and over in a vain attempt to be useful." That so resonated with me as a parent, and also made me chuckle.

So I highly recommend this book as a fun, touching, well-written book of stories. Even if you don't adore horses.

Format: Paperback
Horse Crazy is a marvelous collection of shorts that helps explain the special relationship women and horses enjoy. In the story Galloping Into Forty, author Kimberley Freeman describes riding on a beach at a full out, hell-bent-for-leather gallop. More than any other passage in the book, this one allowed me to understand the lure of horses--and want to go racing across the sand on a horse. Charlotte Mendel's Mucho Muchacho stands out as well, and if you want to understand why women are loco para caballos, I couldn't recommend this book more.

Having little up close and personal experience with horses, I'd never really understood the power--or more accurately, sheer horsepower--they possess. But after reading this collection from dozens of authors and viewpoints, I've finally gotten a glimpse into the majesty and mystique of horses that attracts girls and women of all ages.

Format: Paperback
The stories by and about these women and their horse experiences are somewhat amateurish. While a few are warm and/or funny, most are poorly conveyed and written. Nothing truly profound which is quite disappointing when you consider the depth of the truly close and meaningful relationship one can have with their equine companions.

This is a great book for reading while you have to wait. I take the book to the laundromat and read while the laundry is going. The stories are interesting and refreshing. The stories are well written and I feel like I am right there with the subjects. I recommend this book to anyone who likes horses. There is humor, excitement and drama. I bought the book at Amazon.
