Must Read for Horse Lovers!!!

Very well written and narrated. Touching life story, of a jumping horse, told from the horse's point of view. Expect to get teary eyed when you read it, it stirred a lot of emotions in me.

This is a book I will read MANY times, loved it!

Horse not so silent

I decided to read this book when I saw that it was written from the horses point of view. Growing up with my own horse, and being an animal lover in general I knew I would enjoy it. The surprising thing though is it was more than an enjoyable story, it speaks loudly to selfless service and the struggles we all go through looking for acceptance and love.

This is very sweet and tender story that will leave you with a new understanding of how deeply animals connect not only with us, but with one another. I have always felt that animals are God’s gift to us, showing unconditional love as an example of how rich a love can be. We have a lot we can learn from them.

It was a sweet reminder of all the love my horse Thunder and I shared. I recommend this book to anyone.

It’s also a book you could read with your children with no hesitation.

I throughly enjoyed every minute of this book. I am so thankful it stood out in a sea of books. I will definitely be encouraging my friends to read it.

Excellent, Moving Story!

I have to admit, I wasn't sure if I would like this, but purchased it on the basis of other reviews. My main concern would be that the story would be too sad. I have a hard time listening to stories where animals or people are abused. BUT....I loved every minute of it. The narrator is excellent and his voice gave the story a comfy, friendly intimacy that I really enjoyed. The story is lovely. Well-written by a true horseman. This book is a bargain.
