So, Deanie's book is the amazing story what he achieved as Deanie was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy.
Growing up with this disease, it's not easy. But with such a help of her Dad?
Deanie can do everything, as she did and fulfilled her dream: riding horses, her love, even winning competitions.
How could she not have that dream, living on a farm with horses.
It was quite a journey and not every time it worked out as Deanie wanted it to be.
But with determination and getting up again, after a fall, so never giving up, she finally achieved her dream.
A powerful message for never giving up.
Well done, Deanie. What an inspiration you are.
Thank you that i could read your amazing story.
Written in a conversational style, readers can feel that Deanie is talking directly to them. Sprinkled throughout the book are photographs of Deanie as a young child and as a teenager with her horses. Young readers, ages 8-12, especially those who love horses, will enjoy this book. The message of perseverance even in the face of obstacles is an important one for everyone to learn. An inspiring book, highly recommended.
It all started when that doctor said Deanie would never walk. Her dad had other ideas contrary to what the doctor said. Thus, started Deanie’s long journey to the horse shows. It all started with her dad finding her a pony that she could handle and then strengthening her legs so that she could stay up. Then, she learned to walk the horse without falling off; everything up to jumping when she was eighteen. Through the years she’s ridden many horses as she grew and progressed. In this autobiography, the author takes us through all of the up and downs of her life. She tells us of the horses’ barn burning and her mother losing her favorite horse to Deanie finally getting a horse of her own!
I was very impressed with this inspirational book and the courageous author who wrote it! I feel it should definitely be in your home library. It will teach your children that they can overcome whatever obstacles life throws in their direction.
