Book Review: "The Horse of my Heart" collected by Callie Smith Grant
"The Horse of my Heart" is a collection of 32 true short stories about how horses have impacted the authors' lives. I mostly got this book because my daughter loves horses. Her dream horse is all black except for one white front leg and a star. She adored this book. Her favorite stories were "The Pasture Bully", "A Horse Named Gentle Breeze", "Rocky", "Dynamite", and "Swimming with Cheetah". She found that many of the stories could teach lessons.
I found the stories to be quick and fun to read. There were a variety of types of stories and, like my daughter, thought that many would be good object lessons. In between the stories there are little factoids about horses in general and about specific "famous" horses. I thought the book to be fun and delightful. It was nice to be able to pick up when I only had a few minutes and read another of the stories.
"The Horse of my Heart" is available in paperback:

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. I received no other compensation and all thoughts and opinions are my own.
