Patricia has always dreamed of learning to ride a horse. Finally, the summer she's ten years old, her father announces that the time has come. But when her father pulls up to a shabby stable run-down Dogpatch, Patricia's heart nearly breaks. How can her dreams possibly come true in a place like this? But Patricia is in for a big surprise; for here in Dogpatch she meets two wonderful individuals; kind, patient Mrs. Mack and a glorious chestnut mare named Penny-who will change her life forever.
Patricia is thrilled when her father decides that she's finally old enough to learn to ride. But her dreams of having a beautiful horse of her own are dashed when he takes her to a stable in Dogpatch, the rundown section of town. Patricia is sure that she'll never learn anything in a place like that. But it's in Dogpatch that Patricia meets two individuals--kind, patient Mrs. Mack and a glorious chestnut mare named Penny--who help her overcome her fears, and change her life forever. Powerfully written, beautifully told, and brought to life with rich watercolor illustrations, this is a story that will touch the heart of everyone who reads it.
