Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The Eighty-Dollar Champion: Snowman, The Horse That Inspired a Nation by Elizabeth Letts p. 41

"Up at the barn, the atmosphere was rigorous but fun and can-do. An everyone-pitch-in spirit prevailed."

This was the kind of aura Harry de Leyer, the head of the stables at The Knox School on Long Island, always exuded, whether he was teaching young girls to ride, coaxing high-strung horses to calm down, or getting the best out of Snowman, the plowhorse-turned-champion.

Looks like a good book! I used to love horse stories more than anything. :-)
