by Jan Sharp

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Darken is a quirky little horse who is exceptionally timid, flighty, quick as a cat, and apparently smarter than anyone ever imagined. With forty years of training experience under her belt, his owner, Jan Sharp, fully expects him to be her crowning achievement; instead he sees horse-eating monsters behind every bush, funks out of trick horse school, suffers medical emergencies, and does his best to frustrate her at every turn. All that changes the day Darken walks out of his stall and proves just how smart he really is. Ride along on the five-year journey Darken takes to find his own path in life, and the amazing way he uses his talents to help others. Climb aboard, hold on tight, and enjoy the ride.
Description
Darken is a quirky little horse who is exceptionally timid, flighty, quick as a cat, and apparently smarter than anyone ever imagined. With forty years of training experience under her belt, his owner, Jan Sharp, fully expects him to be her crowning achievement; instead he sees horse-eating monsters behind every bush, funks out of trick horse school, suffers medical emergencies, and does his best to frustrate her at every turn. All that changes the day Darken walks out of his stall and proves just how smart he really is. As he works to overcome his many challenges, Jan is rewarded by watching him blossom. Along the way, she learns that it's the little steps and victories in life that are to be savored and enjoyed, instead of hurried past in an attempt to reach greater goals. Jan discovers Darken's real value is the inspiration his story is to others who are facing their own challenges. Ride along on the five-year journey Darken takes to find his own path in life, and the amazing way he uses his talents to help others. Climb aboard, hold on tight, and enjoy the ride.
