This month, we've been reading Valegro The Little Horse with the Big Dream, by Carl Hester and Janet Rising
Valegro’s one of the most famous horses of all time, having won three Olympic gold medals and broken loads of world records! This book tells the beginning of his journey to dressage stardom, from when he arrives as a young horse at Carl Hester’s yard. The story’s told in Valegro’s own words, and it captures all the thoughts and feelings this incredible horse may have experienced!
There’s loads of fascinating facts to discover, including how Valegro’s life could have been very different indeed! You can also learn more about how dressage rider Carl trains his amazing horses, and there’s a super-cool glossary at the back of the book that’ll get you up to speed on horsey terms!
It’s a super-easy book to read – as well as being really interesting, it’s written with the younger reader in mind. Plus, it’s the first book in a series of six, so if you really love this one you can enjoy five more awesome stories all about Valegro!
