Publisher Comments:

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.

About the Author

New York Times bestselling author Michael Korda's books include Ike, Horse People, Country Matters, Ulysses S. Grant, and Charmed Lives. He lives with his wife, Margaret, in Dutchess County, New York.

Jeane, March 16, 2008 (view all comments by Jeane)
A wide-ranging yet well-focused narrative on experiences with horses. It follows the author's personal journey into the world of horses, from rented rides in New York's Central Park to a privately owned stable in the countryside. Along the way he relates many stories of friends and acquaintances with horses, as well as the relationship of horse to man throughout history. In the background there is a romance and divorce, with the narrator/main character leaving city life to be closer to horses. The book touches on horses in art, horses owned by famous people, little girls and their ponies, and the worlds of formal dressage, small-town rodeos, foxhunting, three-day eventing, and thoroughbreds rescued from the racetrack. It expounds a bit on Arabian, quarter horse and thoroughbred breed histories and characteristics. Excellently written, thoughtful and full of information; replete with humor, interesting anecdotes and lots of good sense, this is a great book.
