The beautiful, intense, and often comical relationships between women and horses are explored in the more than 80 stories collected in this anthology. The history of the horse in women’s lives is examined, as is the physical and emotional impact the animals have on their owners. Contributors ranging from age 11 to septagenarians tell tales of scruffy childhood ponies, sleek and brave thoroughbreds, and even the occasional donkey, seahorse, or carousel steed. Pieces vary in focus from the sense of freedom and power a horse can provide to how a young girl’s dream of having a horse can affect her for years to come.
