by Margaret Fetty

Hardcover(Library Binding)



It was the 2000 Summer Olympic Games. The Australian equestrian team was leading Great Britain by just a few points in the three-day event. Andrew Hoy and his horse, Darien Powers, were on the course. At fence 8, Darien Powers jumped and two rails fell. Then another rail fell at fence 11. There were only two fences left. Darien Powers would have to clear both of them in order to win. Would this show horse make it over and win the gold medal? Look inside to learn more about show horses and how these amazing, athletic animals train to become world champions.
