  1. I loved horse books as a child. Black Beauty, My Friend Flicka (absolute favorite) and its sequels, Thunderhead and Green Grass of Wyoming, The Black Stallion books and for younger readers also by Walter Farley, The Little Black: A Pony books and by C.W. Anderson, The Billy and Blaze Books, also The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses and The Gift of the Sacred Dog both by Paul Goble. Also loved all of Marguerite Henry’s books, Misty of Chincoteague, King of the Wind and many more.

  2. The Heartland series by Lauren Brooke has been a favorite of mine my whole life. Canada also sponsors the 14+ season TV series which is family friendly and phenomenal (never as good as the books but close!)

  3. There is a series, out of print unfortunately, about a pony named Tizz. I can’t remember the author just now. It’s a little dated but easy to read with clean content. It’s probably about a 2nd or 3rd grade reading level.

    1. Omg I remember that series so much amd have tried to locate Tizz books forever. I have yet to find … I am so happy to hear someone knows about Tizz since I was beginning to think I was imagining these books.. Thank you. It has been 50 yrs since I read and still remember.

  4. I read Island Horse by Susan Hughes to my 5 year old granddaughter who is enthralled with horses. I recommend it. Thank you so much for these suggestions! I’ll be looking them up for sure!

  5. Thank you so much for this! My daughter was in tears tonight as we both read the last Pony Pal book. We have enjoyed months of bedtime reading in that series and are both so sad and will miss it terribly. But you have some awesome suggestions here and I cannot wait for us to try them out! Especially Sonrise Stables.

  6. Thank you for these recommendations! My 6-year old daughter’s first chapter book she ever read is now officially Andi’s Pony Trouble! Thankful you compiled this annotated bibliography 😊

  7. Thank you so much! I was looking up exactly this! My 7 year old is obsessed with horses and I was looking for another series at her level! A hit with us was the “I can read – Pony Scouts” Series for kindergarten/1st. I also bought some of the Horse Crazy and Saddle Club books.

  8. We really enjoyed the Misty Inn series. It’s a younger version of the Misty of Chincoteague books. We found them at the library and my daughter absolutely loved them.l and read more than once! Thinking probably somewhere around 2nd-4th grade level maybe.
