** ALERT! -- Free Horse-Related Kindle Book -- ALERT! **

mswillie gave us a great suggestion to start a thread for those interested in snapping up free Kindle horse books when they become available, so here you go!

We’re going to stick this thread for a couple of weeks so folks get a chance to see it and subscribe to it, then anyone who wants to share a hot tip or a reading suggestion can go ahead and post to the thread/bump it.

Happy reading!

I’ll start, with a post apocalyptic scary demon horse book:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007WU6LZ4/ref=kinw_myk_ro_title

Horses and Heroin by Bev Pettersen
Bluegrass State of Mind by Kathleen Brooks

Really enjoyed both of these books over the last 2 days!

Thanks

Just downloaded this one:

And I’m going to re-post this once more before it’s gone:

This one was posted on another thread

Thoroughbreds and Trailer Trash was free for a while, not sure if it still is but I enjoyed it!

At Risk by Kit Ehrman is free right now.
I have only read the first 1/3 but it is better than the average horse book.

How do you cram 7 jumpers into a 6 horse older face to face gooseneck? Is it possible or just bad editing?

I just finished At Risk and it was great!

In the aisle

Great idea! How do people find these books? I got this one while it was still free, but it’s not free now -

http://www.amazon.com/Trophies-An-Equestrian-Romance-ebook/dp/B00998J2B2/ref=sr_1_36?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1361113901&sr=1-36&keywords=horse

People here were poking fun of it, but it’s actually a fun lowbrow read.

We put a smaller horse in the little middle compartment… Load them last, tie them up facing one they won’t harass and voila!

I liked At-Risk a lot. I downloaded the other book by the same author; still haven’t started it yet. I think it’s more racehorse-leaning?

This is a great idea!

I generally go to the Amazon site. Then in the search field pull down Kindle store, type in horse (or whatever key word you might be looking for).

You’ll get a whole bunch of stuff then I go to the “sort by” menu and select “price, low to high”. The free books come up first. There are some “interesting” titles that show up. :slight_smile:

At Risk was quite good, I thought. I’m among the ones who can’t stomach Trophies, FWIW.

The description for the Thoroughbred Conspiracy is a bit of a howler –

"A sinister plot to control the Thoroughbred racing industry has hatched in the Middle East, and is destroying the equine bloodlines of Kentucky.
Is the villainous plot sounding the death knell for the horse racing industry?
Can the efforts and passions of Tucker Flannery, manager of Fairhaven Farm, and Doctor Gwendolyn Gardot, a research microbiologist with the Kentucky Equine Research Center, interpret the ravenous disturbance in time to restore the noble breed to its kingly reign? "

How can a disturbance be ravenous? And how can “efforts and passions” INTERPRET anything? Still, always good to know about the freebies and cheapies.

This is a great idea. Thanks, Mod1!

One rides sort of ‘loose’ in the middle aisle.

Wouldn’t at least one of the 6 horses facing the isle have the center horse for lunch? Not that it would matter in the book the horses were being stolen anyhow.

I also bought the second book, if the first book weren’t free as a teaser I wouldn’t have bought the second in the series.

I was WIPED (mentally) after reading “The World According to Monsanto” just before Christmas. I’d seen Kit Ehrmann’s books mentioned (on here? somewhere) and downloaded all four and devoured them during the holidays! A good, mindless read (don’t interpret ‘mindless’ as anything negative - just that they don’t require brain-strain).

Learned a bit about racing, breeding/foaling out while I was at it, too.
