While I was at the Pomona Horse Expo a couple of weekends ago, I had the pleasure to meet Gayle Carline, author of From the Horse?s Mouth.
The book is the story of how her horse, Snoopy, was a champion, was injured, and then returned to riding. It’s written from his point of view.
Learn more about the book and Snoopy in our video interview with Gayle, here.
Gayle graciously donated a signed copy for us to give away to one lucky reader. To enter, simply comment here with one of your favorite horse books.

From the Back Cover:
When Snoopy was three years old, he won the 2007 Pacific Coast Quarter Horse Association Trail Futurity. His trainer and his owner had his career mapped out?he would be campaigned around the circuit and qualify to be invited to the AQHA World Show.
Then in 2008, Snoopy broke his left hind sesamoid, a small bone in the leg. This injury can mean anything from surgery to euthanasia. Surgery didn’t guarantee he could be ridden again, much less shown.
In the tradition of Black Beauty, this is Snoopy?s own story, told from his special point of view. He tells of his youth, his training, his injury, and his long fight to return to the show arena, to prove he’s the same horse he always was, only different.
