I can't say enough good things about it! Heartwarming and exciting at the same time. Bravo to the author. I loved her other book Perfect Horse too! These are my favorite types of reads! Great Narrator too! I have rescued 4 horses and even helped the rescue organization Omega Rescue the has the Snowman fund in honor of this great rescued horse!
Elizabeth Letts does a fantastic job with her heartfelt rendition of this amazing true story. Bronson Pinchot has a wonderful delivery however, he mispronounces some of the names of the riders and horses which was quite annoying. A bit more preparation on his part would have done the book more justice.
Another example of human and animal partnership. When humans value the animal.
And a reminder that horses are not for slaughter.
Great story. Fascinating facts about the history of the horse in the U.S. If an editor would have used some synonyms for "plow horse" or just deleted 1,000 of its uses, it would have been much better. Overkill to the n-th degree.
As a horse owner and published writer, it was nice to learn some unusual facts but annoying for the minor editing issues, likely caused by a non-horsey editor....
Definitely worth a read, will recommend to horsey friends.
I love a moving story and this delivered. The details about the family, the war. the school, the shows and the time period were great- made the story relatable. The narrator was right on.
yes, Great story line.
Horses! and horse stories
Enjoyed the book, glad he was the one that read the Book Thank you,
just as it says the $80 champion.
enjoyed the book, was a teary in the beggining, to think of horses going to slaughter, I think of them as family members. I am very glad this horse was saved.
