Little Squire - The Jumping Pony: True Horse Stories | [Judy Andrekson]

Little Squire - The Jumping Pony: True Horse Stories

Little Squire was born in an Irish meadow on an early spring day. The colt was beautifully formed with strong, straight legs and a pretty head. By the following spring, the yearling was separated from his mother and turned out to pasture with the other weanlings. Little Squire wasn't happy to be away from his dam so he charged the high stone wall and cleared it easily. Little Squire had just shown an astonishing side of himself that would eventually bring him greatness.

Publisher's Summary

Little Squire was born in an Irish meadow on an early spring day. The colt was beautifully formed with strong, straight legs and a pretty head. But due to his small size, it was unlikely he would be more than a nice child's riding pony. By the following spring, the yearling was separated from his mother and turned out to pasture with the other weanlings. Little Squire wasn't happy to be away from his dam so he charged the high stone wall and cleared it easily. Little Squire had just shown an astonishing side of himself that would eventually bring him greatness.

Over time, the young horse traded hands, crossed an ocean, and ended up on the American show-jumping circuit. That was when he met another diminutive Irish immigrant, Mickey Walsh. The two were inseparable until, at Mickey's request, Little Squire was retired at the top of his game, and while he was still sound. He went out in a blaze of glory, though, ending his last performance with Mickey by jumping a six-foot-two fence - rider-less - in front of a packed arena. During the war-torn 30s, Little Squire had given people something to cheer about.

    "Especially for Horse lovers"

    This was such a heartwarming story both from the human and horse aspect. Anyone who loves horses would enjoy this book. It was narrated with warmth and conviction and I highly recommend it.
