None.


Parent Reaction

This is a wonderful story. Although there is lots of information about horses, but was not overpowering. As someone who has never been involved with the sport, it was a chance to learn something new. This is a book I would read again.

Purchase Recommendation:
Buy! This is a book that will be read over and over; especially by young horse lovers. Parents will love the detailed information about how much it takes to purchase and care for a horse (but probably not enough to dissuade a passionate horse lover).
