REFERENCE BOOKS


FROM CAROLYNíS LIBRARY

Horse Related Categories

** recommended highly

*Although this list is far from complete it represents a good collection of my horse related books that I have read, line by line including the stud books in search of backgrounds. There is not an item I havenít enjoyed or learned from here.

Some of these are out of print. Whereever possible I have tried to include a link that will allow you to read more about the book and possibly buy it. You may also find some available in the trading post under reference books
