Reader Photo Challenge: Equestrian Reads

Here are seven shots of our readers’ favorite books and/or book collection.

This week we asked our readers to show us what equestrian literature they love to read (other than Horse Nation, of course!). Take a look at these stacks and shelves of horse books. We’re drooling! This might be what our version of the classic Twilight Zone episode “Time Enough At Last” would look like… just hopefully without the glasses breaking and, you know, not actually being able to read the books when they’re all in front of us.

But we digress. Here are seven photos from Horse Nation fans of their equine reads.

This is the horsey bookshelf, all the books I could catch. All the Dick Francis books are downstairs under “F,” the Nancy Marie Brown and Rita Mae Brown under “B,” there’s a stack next to the bed, the horse art books are with art stuff…. Currently I’m working my way through Knapamerki, the Icelandic riding levels… I’m on level four (out of five). It hasn’t been translated so I’m struggling through in Icelandic.

Just arrived and cannot WAIT to read!!! Book by Gabrielle Boiselle. Photo by Rich McCarthy.

The autographed book is a 1st edition of Littauer’s “Horseman’s Progress” that I snagged on eBay a couple years ago (and still need to read, actually). The other books a 1959 edition of L’Annee Hippique, the USET Book of Riding, Ridng for America & a 1961 edition of Steinkraus’s “Riding & Jumping” that I bought on Amazon (re. Riding & Jumping, I was expecting the ’68 edition w/Snowbound on the cover but was happily surprised when it turned out to be the earlier version.) Photo by Noelle Maxwell.

Keep an eye out for next week’s 24-hour photo challenge! We announce challenge subjects on Monday around the end of the day on both Instagram and Facebook.

Go reading and go riding!
