A Horse Named Special

A Horse Named Special

by Kathy Brodsky

A heartwarming, uplifting story told in rhyme about a former race horse who now works as a therapy horse.  He helps people of all ages gain confidence and strength – and he changes their lives!  Discussion questions encourage further dialogue.

We held a contest to find the star of the book.  When people sent in horse photos, they donated to equine rescue organizations. Consequently, the contest raised a great deal of money for horse rescue groups.
