Heels Down Magazine and Trafalgar Square Books team up to host the inaugural #BuyAHorseBookDay on May10, 2022!
“Both companies hope all who enjoy reading horse books will come together to celebrate horse books and horse book authors on May 10th each year, posting selfies of horse-book purchases and pics of their favorite equestrian titles, plus supporting their favorite authors, local bookstores, and tack shops.”- From an American Horse Publications Press Release Dated 4/8/22
This sounds like a day right up my alley. I am a voracious reader, passionate about all-things-horse and enjoy writing! How about you?
“Want to get involved? Anyone who loves horses and reading can! Post pics of your horse book shelves, your favorite reads, your TBR pile, and tag them #BuyAHorseBookDay with a note that you can’t wait for May 10th and an excuse to buy another horse book!.”- From an American Horse Publications Press Release Dated 4/8/22

Last but not least, consider purchasing an eBook from The Backyard Horse Shop on Etsy.
I’ve written two eBooks for riders who don’t get as much saddle time as they would like. Sometimes life just doesn’t cooperate with our riding plans. We can feel painfully isolated during these seasons from our horsemanship dreams and from the wider horse community. Yet we still have a strong desire to stay connected to horses and to fellow equestrians. These two books give you ideas for how to do just that!
