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

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.
"A Most Wonderful Story About the Courage and Friendship Between an Extraordinary Man and His Amazing Horse"
There was nothing about this true, inspiring story not to love. Kudos to the author and the storyteller. Just perfect!
Yes. The narrator's performance kept me interested in the story. I thoroughly enjoyed the inflections and accents the narrator used during reading.
I liked how the author displayed Snowman's personality throughout the stories recounted which made him such an endearing star of this story.
I enjoyed hearing the narrator read this story.
When Snowman wanted to come back to his family after being sold, even if it meant jumping many fences with a tire tied to him to discourage leaving his new owner. And when Snowman would come out at horse shows and turn his head to acknowledge and view the audience prior to entering the ring. These stories displayed his personality and love for jumping.
I've shared this book with two of my friends through Audible's "send book" option because I know they will like it, too. Can't wait for the movie!
You don't have to be a horse lover to like this story. It was well written and interesting. I learned about something I didn't know anything about. The narrator was excellent. I highly recommend this book.
Enjoyable story, who doesn't love an underdog and a faithful strong animal as the hero? Narrator very good but actual story has some redundancy. Over all still worth a listen!
Would buy this one if it was abridged. Would not buy another from this author.
Could not recommend due to its plodding along with useless or overly descriptive chapters.
An abridged version
This book could have been cut to three hours and not missed anything. Filled with extraneous information. I tried numerous times to listen through each chapter but found myself fast forwarding. Please make an abridged version
This is a great story about a wonderful and inspiring horse. I now know this animal the way I understand people I've read biographys of. My only criticism is that the author is not a great storyteller. A skilled editor would have cut pages and pages and a natural raconteur would have handled the plot in a more pleasing way. The story itself, however, is so compelling it overcomes all of that.
If you're a horse person, you will feel the character of this noble beast.
