Deb Hockenberry Reviews Tails of Sweetbrier!
8/24/2013 6:34:59 AM

See what Deb Hockenberry says about the inspirational story, Tails of Sweetbrier.


TITLE: Tails Of Sweetbrier

AUTHOR: Deanie Humphrys-Dunne

Publisher: Avid Readers Group

Formats: Kindle, paperback


In this inspiring memoir, the author takes us back through her life and her dream of being a championship rider, winning a lot of blue ribbons. She did do all this and more although it wasnít an easy journey. Ms. Dunne was born with Cerebal Palsey and the doctors told her parents that sheíd never be able to walk. Deanie proved them all wrong. It took longer than it does for most children but at age four she started walking.

From an early age, it was instilled into her and her siblings that you never give up, no matter what. So with her father at the helm of helping her see her dream come true, she started to learn to ride a horse. She kept getting back up on Little Man after countless falls. With her fatherís encouragement, she finally strengthened her legs enough to stay on. On Little Man, Deanie learned the proper way to sit on a horse as well as how to move with him.

This book is written as if the author is speaking directly to the reader. Throughout, she explains different terms like crow hopping, cantering, trotting and more. After she mastered these things, the author wondered if she could manage jumping in shows like her siblings. Her father gave her that chance and had her try to ride, Chiefie, a jumper. After falling off another horse, Chiefie, several times she managed jumping!

By this time, Ms. Dunne was able to enter shows. That meant finding a special horse. One day her father came home with that special horse and her name was Fleet Nancy. Deanie just called her Peach. Peach and Deanie were the perfect team. They entered quite a few horse shows and won blue ribbons for winning several!

I think this inspiring book should be read by every parent, tween, and teen. It brings out that no matter how different the animal or human is, if they want to try to do something they can. The book also brings out that we all have different talents and gifts.
