Horse & Pony Books:
RAJA: STORY OF A RACE HORSE
(OLD BOW PUBLISHING [USA] 2011)
ILLUSTRATED BY MARGARET KAUFFMAN
SUMMARY: Pony-point-of-view story. Raja is a top racehorse running on the Kentucky Derby trail. But when a series of bad luck and a bad fright end Raja's racing career he enters the sometimes murky world of the ex-racehorse. From jumping on the A circuit to working as a police horse, to the horrors of the auction ring, Raja must endure many changes until he finally finds his destiny.
PONYMAD VIEW: Rings the changes on the usual Black Beauty type of story by its setting in the racing and competition world. Although I have not read this as yet,, the book has had many excellent reviews and, with the author's years of experience with horses, is sure to have an authentic feel.
In print and available in both the USA and UK. Signed copies are available by ordering directly from the publishers Old Bow Publishing
