Inhaltsangabe: Through the foggy Irish dawn, red and white banners fluttered above the velvet green moors. The peaceful pastures of Pendyne transformed into a sea of silver-armored knights and battle horses, thrusting their swords towards the dawning Irish sky. King Henry VII mounted his Celtic bay stallion and the wind carried the battle cries-For Wales and Ireland. The Adventures of Barrett: The Racehorse with Magic Shoes is a charming story about a young Thoroughbred colt's dream of becoming a jumper instead of the racehorse he was destined to be. Based on the real horse, the bay colt meets a girl named Kate and he begins his journey. Facing many obstacles, he must prove himself worthy of being a champion to earn his name. Destiny is everything, fate is forever-a true champion comes from the heart.
Vom Autor: We all need heroes and knights in our lives of some sort. From the knights and their battle horses of long ago to our heroes of today, honor and bravery remains the same. If it weren’t for their bravery and courage, my Barrett would not have found his destiny.
My book represents the history of the Thoroughbred from the dawn of its existence to a small colt who knew he was different and needed to find his own place in the world. It represents the spirit of the bonding between horse and rider as well as the world of show jumping.
Any combination of horse and rider is a form of art whether it is Show Jumping, the Grand Prix, Dressage, or Eventing. However, show jumping goes beyond the bounds of thrills and guts. It is a partnership; the most unique experience between animal and rider. It is bonding and trust. It is power and speed. It is equal to flying a plane while staying on the ground. However, this plane on four hooves is also making decisions; where and when to take off, and propelling themselves over the top of an obstacle..
Dreams and Dedications from the book.........To the children with their ponies, trainers, professional riders, Grand Prix riders, and the United States Olympic Team…They all have one thing in common; they all have the passion inside them – the spirit of the sport and the bonding between horse and rider. They were a great inspiration.
