Every day, thirteen-year-old Sadie lives in fear about her father serving in Afghanistan. She turns to her love of horses to help her cope, and commits to showing at the largest local horse shows and volunteering for therapeutic riding programs.
It seems like the perfect plan, until one of the therapy programs provides unexpected challenges. Then, her inexperienced horse and an unwelcome show ring rival threaten her chances at her first horse show.
Sadie wants to make her father proud. She wants to help others. But will she find the courage to overcome her fears?
Sensitive, thoughtful, relevant, and moving, Believing In Horses, Too is award-winning-author Valerie Ormond’s second insightful book exploring military family life and challenges faced by many of today’s youth.
