I can see why horse people get all worked up over this book. The characters' voices, personalities, and mannerisms are likable albeit simple and one-sided (which I assume the author think's horses are in fact). I can imagine horse people buried in this book wide-eyed as the character's fate unfold and their lives are linked to horse owners of various kindness and attitudes. In this regard, the book definitely makes its statement around the hardships many horses have under their human hands; especially those horses deemed for pulling labor. At no point was I wondering, "I wonder how Anna feels about horse's and their use in society?" THAT point is very clear. Now if you can take or leave the noble horse, then this book is an easy read, entertaining enough that you will move along without regretting ever picking up the thing. AND you can say to others who ask if you read it, "yes I have", but brace yourself of the asker is a horse-lover, you may find yourself listening to their heart-felt proclamations about it. I leave the decision of agreeing or refuting to you - each person must pick their battles.
