A story about trust, hope, following your dreams, and not knowing when to stop and listen to the yourself and the experts.

Many of Henry's horse stories are based on real horses, such as this one. Black Gold is the remarkable story of a horse that overcomes an unusual handicap to race - he runs with his head up instead of down. I highly recommend all Henry's books.
