Best equestrian audiobooks to listen to on the go

February 15, 2021 5 min read

No time to sit down and read a good book? Then this selection of equestrian-themed audiobooks maybe just the answer as you can listen to them while you work

As equestrians our lives are often busy and we have so many things to do, so we rarely have free time to sit down and read a good book, which is why we think this amazing selection of audiobooks are just the right answer. You can learn and listen to them in the horsebox, in the car, around the yard or absolutely anywhere.

The first thing that comes to my mind when I think about audiobooks is Audible.  Which is an Amazon subscription that allows you to access 200,000+ audiobooks.
"They offer 30 days free trial with a free audiobook to keep and you can cancel online anytime."

Farm Boy - Equestrian Book

Joey was the last working horse on the farm, and the apple of Grandpa’s eye. In War Horse, Joey was sent away from the farm to be a warhorse in World War I. Grandpa had joined the cavalry in order to find, and fight, with Joey. Farm Boy brings us forward 50 years, with Grandpa not only telling his grandson Joey’s story, but also a ‘shameful secret’ which he has held for years – that he never learned to read and write. The story is set in Iddesleigh in Devon and lovingly evokes the bonds between farm and farmer; grandson and grandfather. The spirit of rural life is superbly captured in Michael Morpurgo’s writing.
