As a rider and having owned a horse I was so pleased to discover "HORSE MIRACLES". Brad Steiger and Sherry Hansen Steiger's newest delightful collection of true horse tales is an absolute lovely tribute to a long overlooked subject. It easily demonstrates the most noble and important role that horses can miraculously play in the lives of humans. I'm sure that every horse owner can identify with the Steiger's newest book. And if you have never owned a horse it gives a wonderful insight into the oft times ignored talents and sensitivity of these noble creatures. I've enjoyed all of the Steiger storys about other animal miracles but "HORSE MIRACLES" is just especially outstanding! I just could not put it down. And, as usual it is told through the Steigers own special and creative way of writing that lets you, as the reader 'see' and 'feel' the action in each story as it happens.
Does it get any better than Brad Steiger and Sherry Hanson Steiger's "Horse Miracles"? ...'neigh'...Charming and wonderful
is the only way I know to describe their newest book!!!...I will read it over and over as it is highly inspirational! I plan to be sure to use "HORSE MIRACLES" as a top gift consideration to friends and absolutely recommend it as an outstanding book for any member of the family individually or to read aloud from on family night.

Format: Paperback
This book is plagued with plagerism of already published stories. Most of the details regarding the stories about Ruffian and Secretariat are inaccurate, and they called Riva Ridge, "River Ridge". Very, very, very poorly researched and written. I do not advise anyone to buy this book. I was very disgusted with it. Also, they mention several times that horses are often sold for dog food, and apparently they did NO research on this little fact, HORSES HAVEN"T been used in dog food for nearly 30 years!!!! Perhaps they were trying to cover up for the slaughter industry which buys and slaughters horses for human consumption overseas. I couldn't even finish the book, I didn't trust any of the content as truthful.

This is the perfect collection for teenage, horse-crazy girls, and reminds me of the Horse Stories I gobbled up as a kid.

It's a collection of true stories, apparently from people all over the country, each told to a writer and then edited together into this collection. Some are better than others, but they all remind us of how noble, perceptive and kind horses can be when they become partners with their owners instead of beasts of burden.

By Monica M. Horn on November 11, 2013
Format: Paperback
Don't waste your time with this book because it is so far from factual that it's laughable.
I began this book with high hopes. THEN.... I got to the section on Secretariat! I'd read both Wolfe's and Nack's book on Secretariat so the inconsistencies glared off of the pages of the Steiger book! I won't bore you with explaining each part of the Secretariat story that was inaccurate but here is just one example:

Steiger Book says: "...by the time Secretariat reached the backstretch, he had already achieved a 10-length lead over Sham"

FACT The "backstretch" (when referring to the track itself) is the straight-away that begins right after the first turn and continues to the beginning of the "far turn" (2nd turn). Sham and Secretariiat were still competing for the lead, running neck to neck, coming out of the first turn (this is when they "reached the backstretch") They continued to run close to one another until nearing the far turn, so for most of the backstretch. The official notes made by the Belmont Chart Caller for the Daily Racing Form reads: "SECRETARIAT..... to vie for the early lead with SHAM to the backstretch, disposed of that one after three-quarters, drew off at will rounding the far turn". Give poor Sham the credit he deserves! The truth is, he hung with the Superhorse for the better part of the KY Derby before Secretariat took the convincing lead.

It is pitifully obvious that these authors made a half-hearted, careless attempt at briefly re-telling the story of a great champion. What a disservice! Secretariat deserves better! Shame on you, Brad and Sherry Steiger!!

I bought this as a gift to a friend that had to move and give up her horses. She misses them so much so I thought of her when I saw this book. She loved it. She has read it twice now and said it will be read again and again.
