We watch and share heartwarming videos of animals and the people who love them. For over a decade, Callie Smith Grant has been helping people celebrate our animal friends with her delightful collections of stories, and she's back with more true stories for horse lovers.

Beautiful Celebration of Majestic Horses

There’s something magical about horses that causes children to dream of owning one someday.

The Horse of My Dream – True Stories of the Horses We Love is a compilation of many such stories. Callie Grant Smith packaged the heartwarming memories into a familiar “Chicken Soup” fashion.

Each three to five-page story draws readers into the beauty that loving a horse brings. There’s just something different about owning or loving a horse than another type of pet. The size, strength, and majesty of a horse brings such a unique element to a human/animal relationship. The power the horse holds the potential of danger, making the establishment of a genuine connection that much more critical.

The Horse of My Dreams brings all those special feelings to light.

How this book affected me:

As a member of a horse rescue organization, I loved reading the stories of other horse lovers. This book was especially personal to me, because it reminded me of the book I wrote about horse rescue that was also a compilation of different people’s perspective. I enjoy being united in spirit to so many people who hold horses within their hearts.

Who would enjoy this book:

Horse lovers, this book will speak to your soul!
