Not as arousing as the title would have you believe. Plus, it is no larger than a regular sized book of lesbian horse stories.

Format: Paperback
So I'm a big opponent of all things heteronormative, and so it was nice to finally find some literature that featured horses partaking in a different lifestyle (not that it's a choice, mind you, I just liked that they admitted some lady horses probably liked other lady horses). Except that this book was not at all about homosexual mares.

Rather, it was about these great busty lesbians who seemed to have very little in the way of steady work. Their days consist mostly of sleeping, some horseback riding (but only little walks of twenty minutes through the garden, a loop around the veranda, and then back again), and then stories by a campfire at night (a campfire at a country estate? With no butlers or Indians? What?!?). Inexplicably the ladies' steeds are present at these storytelling sessions as friends and partners, though lacking even the rudimentary body language reading capabilities of Clever Hans it escapes me how they ever thought they might seduce the ladies. Short answer: they don't.

The series of campfire stories are utterly predictable, ranging from the oppressive, homophobic patriarchy to the repressive, bigoted anti-matriarchal forces. Naturally I loved them, but come on, ladies! Alisa and Monica, I know you can do better. Maybe just Monica, actually. Alisa, this was a good effort, but it remains your only book and I worry you may have hit a protracted case of writer's block. Take a cue from Monica, who had some great sequels like "Lois Lenz, Lesbian Secretary," and "Bobby Blanchard, Lesbian Gym Teacher," and who could forget "Program Evaluation Procedure for Leisure Service Agencies?" A distinct lack of equine-related subplots, but then again, so was this, and I presume that it's a mistake you'll soon rectify in "Emily Earheardt, Lesbian Horse.

As a young filly I found this tome to be soul-satifying. I did not realize I could have passionate realtionships with anything other than the barn cat (her name is Willow, sigh. . . . . ). It has opened my horizons which I expect to fill with exciting new friends and partners. Thank you The Big Book of Lesbian Horse Stories!

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Princess Twilight Sparkle on September 27, 2014
Format: Paperback
I found this book in Princess Celestia's restricted archives in the Canterlot library. She disapproved, but if she didn't want me reading it then she shouldn't have put the book behind seven easily defeated magic cipher locks with deadly traps. It was practically out in the open!

Despite the enticing, forbidden fruit title of this book, it made me very disappoint. The distinctly non-lesbian (they're stallions, actually) ponies are depicted as dumb beasts and subservient to some sort of bipedal simian females. At no point do any lesbian ponies get together for a good, healthy [REDACTED BY EQUESTRIAN CIVIL AUTHORITY]. I don't think this book even belongs in our world based on the residual magic resonance that surrounds it. The mysterious "human" creatures are certainly the denizens of some strange and distant dimension.

Anyway, I loaned the book to Lyra Heartstrings and haven't seen her since. The overdue charge is on her head.

How can you not love this book? It's a silly good time full of lesbians and their horses. My only complaint - too g-rated! Pseudo-pulp is always funnier with x-rated scenes, but I still got many chuckles out of this book. The title alone is worth the purchase!

Format: Paperback
This collection of short stories is a great read. All the stories are very funny and very entertaining and each one plays off of key bits of lesbian history and culture in clever but appreciative ways. The stories are nicely over the top and campy, making me laugh out loud multiple times, but you also end up actually caring about the characters and what happens to them (both the girls and the horses!). Going along for the ride (sorry) and reimagining a world where girls can keep their horses AND get the girl was loads of fun. The cover is excellent also!

This was much, much more interesting that I thought it would be. I've been trying to broaden my literary horizons beyond dead white males and "Lesbian Horse Stories" sounded challenging. Actually, the stories are very touching and my heart went out to the protagonists each time. The clash of timeframes from one story to the next enhanced the book, I thought, spinning a tale across decades. It's not without its flaws, but this is a good book and I'm glad I read it.
