Publisher's Summary

The extraordinary bond between Lissa Bachner, a young blind woman, and Milo, a neglected, frightened horse, helped them become one of America's most inspiring, successful riding teams in the world of show jumping.

Lissa Bachner was born with a passion for horses and won her first blue ribbon at age five. Other awards would follow as a young rider, and for years Lissa trained with jumpers, tackling more difficult leaps, and working to perfect her ride.

When blindness struck in her teens, it appeared her passion for riding would come to an end. How could she jump hurdles when she could barely navigate through her own home?

But success, trust, and love came to Lissa when her trainer convinced her to buy a "diamond in the rough" from Germany. On New Year's Eve, Milo arrived at the barn, frightened and neglected. Taking one look at his shaking, filthy body, Lissa promised Milo that he would only know kindness. Through countless eye surgeries and the many months of training and work, Lissa and Milo formed a magic bond that made them inseparable.

With effortless humor and penetrating compassion, Lissa weaves a story of unfaltering faith in Milo, and the unconditional love they shared.

Amazing story

Amazing story. I wasn't crazy about the way it was narrated. The narrator seemed to emphasize every sentence which got tiring.
