    "One of the most famous stories in horse-racing history told with illustrations makes this a rare book for children. My granddaughter loves horses so she loved the book, it was easy to read and told of Seabiscuit's family, owner, trainer, jockey and of course the big race. "

    "Tschiffely's Ride is a classic, but in all honesty was not really about horses. This book is more about educating readers on what the world used to be long ago. I would give all aspects of this book 10 stars if I could. "

    "In my quest to research non-fiction horse books this book has nothing to do with what I am looking for. Being a dark horse is completely different than being a real horse, and just because this lady wrote about Black Beauty it doesn't make her qualified to discuss realhorses."
