Favourite Horsey Autobiographies

What is your favourite horsey autobiography? I really enjoyed 'What will be' by William Fox-Pitt.

I really enjoyed Zara Phillips autobiography, although it took me a while to get into it because it's not written from her point of view. It's in the third person which is slightly bizarre.

I loved monty robers autobiography - the man who listens to horses. It was fascninating reading about how he struggled to get his methods recognised. Also if it was not for the Queen (our Queen) he prob would not have been recognised as quickly.

I loved Monty Robert's autobiography too! I particularly liked the way it was set out in chapters with horse names, related to the horse he dealt with at each time of his life!

Dominochase - have you read Monty Roberts' the horses in my life? It was a brillant book about some of the horses he has helped over the years. I have read it several times!

I have it on my bookshelf but I haven't got there yet! I'll have to get it down and actually read it! Thanks for the recommendation!

Hi :D
Not really an autobiography but "The Horsey Life" by Simon Barnes is pretty amazing :D

i loved Mary kings autobiography because it shows that even if you are not born into a horsey family and didn't have a horse when you could barely talk, you can still be a brilliant rider! she is amazing and inspirational and is one of my favorite horsey celebs!
