This short, heavily illustrated book tells the story of a wild mustang’s rescue from a shelter for homeless horses by a pre-teenage girl. The young horse clings to memories of a glorious freedom with a wild herd of horses before being subjected to cruelties and abuse when captured and later abandoned.
The young girl carefully nurtures and trains the horse in a program to find homes for these rescued animals. A bond forms between the sensitive girl and the grateful horse, who finds for the first time someone in the world of people who truly cares for him. The pair competes in horse shows as part of the training program, receiving awards and recognition for both.
When the training ends, the bond formed between the girl and the once-wild horse makes it difficult to separate them when the horse is purchased at an auction. Seeing the injustice about to ensue, a stranger steps up and surprises the horse and the girl. This is a book that horse lovers of all ages will enjoy.
