A Noble SpiritA Noble Spirit

An inspiring story of confidence, loss, love, reconciliation and the joy of horses, friends and family. You don’t need to be a horse lover to enjoy the characters and learn about horses! While the people and small town are fictional, Noble is real and true to his breed, personality and courage. He is owned by the author, and he inspires her, as he does the characters and readers.
