The Riding Corner’s Reading Corner – Horse Book Club

The Riding Corner is launching a new online horse book club modeled after city-wide efforts and college programs entitled “One Book, One Community: Common Reading Programs” aimed at creating a common intellectual experience.  Obviously, everyone here is passionate about both horses and riding so we thought that by adding an intellectual bond to the emotional and physical commonalities that already exist we would could strengthen the friendships and connections made here. Each quarter, The Riding Corner’s horse book club will highlight 2 books, one for older teens and adults and one for children.  After reading the selected book, just leave a comment to let us know what you thought of the book  simply by rating it Great, Good, Ok, Fair, Bad, or Horrible.  At the end of the year (May 2015), any registered user who has rated all four book selections will be entered into a drawing and the winners will receive all four of next year’s books for free!

Let the reading begin!

In 1914, Joey, a beautiful bay-red foal with a distinctive cross on his nose, is sold to the army and thrust into the midst of the war on the Western Front. With his officer, he charges toward the enemy, witnessing the horror of the battles in France. But even in the desolation of the trenches, Joey’s courage touches the soldiers around him and he is able to find warmth and hope. But his heart aches for Albert, the farmer’s son he left behind. Will he ever see his true master again?
