Our Favorite Teen Horse Fiction

Do you enjoy good teen horse fiction?

When the thermometer stays below freezing and darkness comes early do you relish the time you spend curled up in your favorite chair with a good horse book in one hand and hot cocoa in the other? Maybe fresh baked cookies on the end table.

Conversely when the summer heat is too intense for strenuous activity do you seek a shade tree? Lying there with icy cold lemonade in your hand, do you watch clouds drift lazily and dream of a different life?

The smell of grass tickling your nostrils, the sounds of bird chirping overhead and bugs buzzing, all you need is a new horse book to whisk you away on some adventure.

From classic books to new releases the choice can be overwhelming. We want to help you find just the right teen horse fiction.
