Often in books of this nature you discover that a youngster comes from too poor a background to be considered for admission to a famed riding academy so the individual must work hard to prove his or her worth.

Flip that scenario around in this well written novel. Hans dreams of working with the famed Lipizza stallions but he comes from a wealthy banking family and this is considered too lowly a position or occupation.

When he finagles an invitation to join the riders, Hans' life is forever changed. He is paired with the stallion Borina, a horse that has trained many young riders, but the challenge will be: is this pair really that compatible?

You'll discover the answer to this question as you read this nicely illustrated story about the training of both horse and rider in Austria.

Not only has this novel been warmly embraced by youthful readers and many adults, but it is also on its way to becoming a true classic in this subject area of fiction. Don't let your horse lover miss out on this very special story.
