Looking for suggestions: Picture books about horses?

Discussion started on

Would love your suggestions of picture books about horses (or ponies) for my 3.5 year old daughter. Beautiful illustrations are a plus. Both fiction and NF suggestions welcome. Thank you!

(Edited to add: feel free to suggest your own book! As you can imagine, as a writer with a daughter who loves books on a certain topic, we already have most of the titles that come up on a google search of "horse picture books" etc. so I'd love to hear new titles!)

Thank you, JulieM! That looks like an exciting book and from the cover it seems to have the type of horse illustrations she loves!

I can't help myself......I'm going  to suggest my book "A Horse Named Steve" It has quirky illustrations and is great for reading out loud.
