Horse People: Scenes from the Riding Life by Michael Korda
In Horse People, Michael Korda (editor-in-chief at Simon & Schuster) tells of his passion for horses, and others that share his enthusiasm for the equine species. Korda not only chronicles his own relationship with horses, including meeting his wife and riding lessons with his son, but he also offers a peek inside the lives of the incredibly rich and privileged. Owning and stabling horses is not just a hobby of the wealthy, but for many it's a way of life that perfectly delineates their status as members of an aristocratic set. Horse People has received positive reviews and is probably a must read for anyone seriously involved in the riding life. The Washington Post says, "Korda's a lovely raconteur -- self-deprecating, informative, poignant, richly funny. He gives us not a gallop but a mosey through the equine world, illustrated in part with his own charming drawings."
