Welcome to Knight Equestrian Books
We are all about horses! We have Books and DVDs for every equine interest, fiction and non-fiction, for children and adults. Knight Equestrian Books has been serving the needs of horse enthusiasts since 1987, at our bookstore in Maine, on the road at shows and, since 1996, on the Internet.
We have collected books and DVDs from around the world to help you care for and train horses, teach riders, and master new riding skills – from dressage to driving, from eventing to endurance riding, and from trail riding to team penning. Or, maybe you like stories about horses – we have those, too.
