The Horse Secret
Seven horses with a secret gift of human speech bestowed on them by the mythical flying horse Pegasus all reside at The North Ranch where they share the setting with their human caretakers who have no knowledge of just how special their horses are. The daily lives of these horses with their chaotic adventures, bickering and schemes, offer the reader a look into equestrian personalities which mirror those of their human counterparts, yet with enchanted and dramatic results. Each chapter presents a different adventure the stablemates encounter through the passing of one year. Chapter by chapter the drama unfolds until it climaxes in the final chapter titled The Great Adventure.
Meet Trouble, the incorrigible rogue colt that refuses to be ridden but later goes on to discover deep within himself the heart of a champion and becomes a world class racehorse.
There is Geni the wise elderly Arabian mare whose guidance and counsel offers insight to the gift and instills pride in the heritage of being a mighty horse.
Dabir the alpha mare leads her fellow horses through their evolving journey of life as she once led the field to the finish line years ago.
Arrogant and egocentric to a fault, Sonny bullies his way through life yet is good at heart as he and the others eventually discover.
Groomswing is the "Yes man" of the barn, a diplomat and true friend who comes to the defense of others as needed.
Miss, mother of Princess, epitomizes all mothers who fear for their youngs' well being as she knows her foal will soon be sold off.
Princess has but one desire in life, which is to be ridden by young children.
When Princess is eventually sold, The Great Adventure begins. Fueled by love and the thrill of adventure, a scent sniffing barn cat named George leads the herd in search of Princess with a common goal to find out if she is happy. What will happen as these country horses travel together under the cloak of darkness through an unknown landscape? By the time the adventure is over the herd will learn more about life and themselves than they ever dreamed possible.
Filled with adventure, a touch of mythology, a splash of humor and human characters with endearing personalities, The Horse Secret takes the reader on a journey they wont soon forget. It is suitable material for young adults and offers readers situations that all can relate to.
