Dante: Horses of the Maury River Stables

author: Gigi Amateau

series name:
Horses of the Maury River

Dante’s Inferno may be the grandson of the greatest racehorse in modern times, but his start proves a rough one, both in life and on the track. When Dante fails as a racehorse, he lands briefly at a Thoroughbred rescue facility run by rehabilitating prisoners before being adopted as a project horse at the Maury River Stables. It’s not easy for Dante to make friends — horse or human — but slowly, horses Daisy and Napoleon bring him into the fold, and the girl Ashley begins to work with him. Can Dante put his fears aside and find redemption as an eventing horse?

Handsome but headstrong, a retired racehorse finds a second chance in this affecting, fast-paced novel that comes straight from the horse’s mouth.
