horse books

I’ve got a question from a reader: “What books do you recommend for almost-12-yr-olds who are really smart but only read horse books?”

I’ve already got Mercedes Lackey’s Valdemar (particularly the Arrows books to start with), Caitlin Brennan’s HOUSE OF THE STAR in particular, Robin McKinley’s THE BLUE SWORD, and I’m thinkin’ maybe Anne McCaffrey’s Harper Hall trilogy, although fire lizards are not *technically* horses. :)

What am I missing, I asked gleefully, because there is nothing so much fun as asking LJ for book recommendations. *beams*
