A lot of DP's heros are cowboys or own a ranch.  I don't recall a heck of a lot of horse details in any of them.  If there is, it's just glanced over and I have no idea how accurate the details would be.

Thanks! That is actually quite helpful. If the details are brief, there is very little chance that they would pull me out of the story if they were not accurate. :)

The most horse-oriented DP would probably be That Burke Man. The heroine is a champion barrel racer who was injured in an auto accident. As Sarah mentioned, many of the others are set on cattle ranches and there is more narrative about cattle than horses.

I vaguely recall a passage (no, I don't remember which book) in which the hero's stallion was declared to be a very large horse, then in the details it was mentioned that he was 15 hands high. That's what? 60 inches? Hell. That's not big. My sister's Welsh pony was bigger than that! LOL

But then, the problem may be with her math skills...

Hmm. Yes, I'd have to agree that the stories more revolve around the characters, not so much their ranching or horse...expertise? Lol. Sorry, I know next to nothing about horses. Only ever rode twice in my life, and both times I was led around like a little kid. Course, I did pump the handlers for information and got to understand what they meant by fiften hands.

 

Also, for DP, I know the book with Crystable Gaines and Judd Dunn talk a lot about livestock and raising beef. They even travel to somewhere to negotiate improving their beef. Again, don't know the exact terms. But that's about it.
