Horse Crazy: Women And the Horses They Love Paperback – November 15, 2005
Top Customer Reviews
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.
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.

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. Read morePublished on August 27, 2011 by Barbara Stanfield
