Book Review: Horse People

I just finished Michael Korda’s Horse People, and I highly recommend it! Interestingly, I bought this book back in 2007, got a few pages in, declared it boring, and placed it back on my shelf. I’m not sure why I dropped it without giving it a fair shake, but I picked it back up about[…]
