Overview

Horse People: Scenes from the Riding Life by Michael Korda

Bestselling author Michael Korda's Horse People is the story -- sometimes hilariously funny, sometimes sad and moving, always shrewdly observed -- of a lifetime love affair with horses, and of the bonds that have linked humans with horses for more than ten thousand years. It is filled with intimate portraits of the kind of people, rich or poor, Eastern or Western, famous or humble, whose lives continue to revolve around the horse.

Korda is a terrific storyteller, and his book is intensely personal and seductive, a joy for everyone who loves horses. Even those who have never ridden will be happy to saddle up and follow him through the world of horses, horse people, and the riding life.

This book was a pleasure to read. It starts out a little slow giving you personal details of the author, but soon picks up. It tells of the horsey experiences the author has had. He describes the horse world most accurately as well as adding in his humor. You feel like you really come to know the characters and the horses as well as falling in love with them. You d=won't want the book to end because the author makes it so much fun to read. And you might just learn something as well.

Good book, both about the author's personal life with the equine life and different experiences he had with other horsey organizations. I liked the different experiences better, like the hunt rather than his commentary on the different horses he owned. Good book overall.
