I wrote a poem about horses that won a poetry contest. I'm glad lots of other people love writing about horses too. I've also found that girls are the majority of the ones writing. ALso if you haven't watched the movie Buck, I highly reccomend it!

I love horses and I have riding lessons every week.  Do you ride?

I think there is nothing better than being around horses.  Though writing about horses comes close.  ;)

That's awesome!  You're so lucky!  I ride Tenesses Walking Horses.  They're great because instead of doing a bumpy trot, they do a smooth running walk.

I know! I really miss riding, but money doesn't go far these days. I used to ride this paint pony named Asia, and I fell in love with her. She has a very bumpy ride because her pasterns aren't at a good angle, but I LOVE her none the less.

It is kind of late so I can't read it right now but I did add it to my favourites so I can read it later.  I'm glad I found a story about a horse.  That's my favourite type to read (and write).  I look forward to reading it and I hope you will be able to finish the book.  I know I always start books and never finish them.  I'll comment again after I read what you've posted so far.

Thanks! Actually, the whole book has been finished for over five months and I'm starting another one.

That's great! :D

I hope you post the rest of your book soon.

It looks good so far.  I'm looking forward to reading more.

I am in the process of writing a book series about a girl and her horse.  I noticed you write in the third person (using the main charachter's name and narrorating for her).  I prefer writing in the first person (from the characters point of view using "I").  Have you ever tried that?

I wish you all the best with the book you ... (more »)
