Oh yes! I read the whole series and Farley's Island Stallion books, as well. The ladies on the Bookmobile always set aside any new "horse books" for me. :D

Arriving late to this, but saying Welcome Cat.
I think my favourite Arthurian novels remain The Crystal Cave and the Hollow Hills by Mary Stewart.
Les proz e les vassals
Souvent entre piez de chevals
Kar ja li coard n’I chasront

'The Brave and the valiant
Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

Welcome Cat, I am just discovering the Arthurian stories through reading Mists of Avalon and will definitely be looking for more about Arthur!

Hope you enjoy it here.
