From the Horse’s Mouth

Media Release: A sim­ple horse goes on a dif­fi­cult journey


Front CoverWhen I was a young horse, I thought if I wasn’t always good, I could at least be use­ful. Then I broke my leg.”

When Snoopy was three years old, he won the 2007 Pacific Coast Quar­ter Horse Asso­ci­a­tion Trail Futu­rity. His trainer and his owner had his career mapped out—he would be cam­paigned around the cir­cuit and qual­ify to be invited to the AQHA World Show.

Then in 2008, Snoopy broke his left hind sesamoid, a small bone in the leg. This injury  can mean any­thing from surgery to euthana­sia. Surgery didn’t guar­an­tee he could be rid­den again, much less shown.

In the tra­di­tion of Black Beauty, this is Snoopy’s  own story, told from his spe­cial point of view. He tells of his youth, his train­ing, his injury, and his long fight to return to the show arena, to prove he’s the same horse he always was, only different.


“The per­fect gift-book for horse-lovers of all ages.”

—Michele Scott, best-selling author of Silent Har­mony (Into the Ring)

“It’s laugh-out-loud funny, touch­ing, and a great way to learn about life as a horse.”

- Deb­bie Haas, book reviewer, Cal­i­for­nia Rid­ing Magazine

  2. […] By Gayle Car­line­Horse Lover, Writer, and Ever­last­ing Opti­mist­Wel­come to spring! We’ve got birds nest­ing in our ter­race, flow­ers bloom­ing in our yard, and the horses are all shed­ding their win­ter coats. I started con­tribut­ing to this weblog on the fourth Sat­ur­day of the month, how­ever over time, I’ve drifted to the pri­mary. Do not know the way it occurred, how­ever this month, I may give you a pub­lish on April Idiot’s, Easter, or Passover.Vendor’s selec­tion, as they are saying.April is a big month for me. Snoopy was born on the twenty eighth, and two days after his fourth birth­day, he broke his leg. Belief me, I keep in mind it nicely.Right now looks like a great time to re-go to a type of days, both his start or his dam­age. Since I’m the ever­last­ing opti­mist, I select the hap­pier of these two. I might inform you the story of Snoopy’s deliv­ery, how­ever I feel I am going to let him inform you the way it occurred:* * * (Excerpted from FROM THE HORSE’S MOUTH: ONE LUCKY MEMOIR) […]
