A gorgeously illustrated anothology of horse poems.

No saddle,
bridle, bit
for me,
I grip my
pony's mane,
and we
are one,
--from "My Pony" by Ruth Feder

Joyous colts gallop through snowy fields. Mystical white horses canter in the moonlight. From the wonder of a new-born foal to the quiet grace of a beloved mare at pasture, horses capture our imagination like no other animal can. A celebration of horses in all their majesty, this collection of poems will inspire any young reader who has ridden a horse--or has dreamed of riding one.
