These enthralling true stories about the bond between girl and horse raise questions about "autonomy and desire, privilege and ambition, identity and freedom, and the competing forces of domestication and wildness."
All of which relates to the insurmountable trust between human and beast, one that doesn't just magically flee after girlhood. Whether you were a horse girl, know a horse girl, or simply enjoy gripping narratives, this book will make you laugh, cry, and think. Reading this as an almost decade-removed horse girl made me realize that it would be wrong to say, "I was a horse girl"—I am
a horse girl! (HC)
