Carson Ellis’s HOME meets Carter Higgins’s EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR A TREEHOUSE in this poetic, open-ended testament to the power of imagination, through the prism of horses.
In lovely, lyrical fashion, IF YOU WANT TO RIDE A HORSE introduces young readers to the joys of owning, riding, and caring for horses. It only starts with imagination—from there, the possibilities are endless.
Beginning with a daydream, our young rider goes from dreaming about a horse, choosing the ideal kind of horse, meeting the horse, cleaning the horse, tacking up in preparation to ride, soothing their horse through a hard moment, triumphantly getting on, and finally riding gloriously off down the beach.
Is it the best dream ever or a dream come true? It hardly matters: Gael Abary’s art makes even the most incredible fantasy feel possible, and award-winning author’s Amy Novesky’s unforgettable language is an ode to the power of dreams and self-belief to change any young child’s life.
The book includes an author’s note, an illustrator’s note, and tantalizing fun facts about horses and horseback riding.
