Beyond the Homestretch by Lynn Reardon (2009)
Did you ever wonder what happens to thoroughbred racehorses once they are no longer fit to race? You might find this trip to a Texas racehorse adoption ranch an interesting and informative read. Even if you are not a racing fan (which I am), author and equestrian Lynn Reardon’s account of her personal transformation from accountant to owner of a racehorse adoption ranch will keep you engaged. Reardon takes readers along on a ride atop fiery racehorses while dealing with offbeat horse people and adjusting to the colorful Texas culture. It is full of equine melodramas and surprising, Zen-like insights.

Although not a racing story, Conversations with a Prince by Helen Husher is a beautifully written, insightful story of the profound effect her return to horseback riding has on Helen’s life . You might also enjoy it. I’ll give your suggestion a try!
