I'm a city girl and I never fantasized about horses. My parents took me to the Farm in the Zoo at Lincoln Park Zoo when I was very young. I saw horses and cows and pigs, and once even rode a camel. They were all very smelly animals. I never got into horses. I went to summer camp when I was 8 and hated the required horseback riding lessons. The smell ended up making me actually sick so I got permission not to take any more riding lessons from the head of the camp.
I know there's a ton of girls' books with horses out there, but there were also a lot of girls who never got into horses either.
