We are so excited to celebrate our third annual #BuyAHorseBookDay!

Each year on May 10th we join our partners at Heels Down Mag (https://heelsdownmag.com/) to invite horse book readers and writers from all over the world to celebrate quality literature that features what we love most (horses) and both educates and entertains. And this year we are highlighting one of the greatest horse book authors of all, MARGUERITE HENRY, who brought us Misty of Chincoteague, King of the Wind, Justin Morgan Had a Horse...and so many more!

We invite all of you to join the fun today by posting about your favorite Marguerite Henry book, or your favorite horse book, or your favorite author, or your favorite bookstore or tack shop that carries horse books, or you buying a horse book, and tagging it #buyahorsebookday (@horseandriderbooks and @heelsdownhappyhour )  and we'll be liking, following, and reposting all day long!

We'll also be awarding prizes for:

  • Best Marguerite Henry related post
  • Best book post with a horse
  • Best kid's post
  • Best buying a book post

In addition, shop our online bookstore at TrafalgarBooks.com all day today (through midnight Pacific Time) and get 30% off sitewide! And eight lucky customers who order a horse book from us will find a surprise FREE BOOK in their package, compliments of Trafalgar Square Books.

We can't wait to see everyone's #buyahorsebookday posts!
