The magnificent Lipizzan stallions of Vienna come to life as never before in this exciting story from Newbery Award–winning author Marguerite Henry, back in print by popular demand.


A young boy named Hans dreams of one day working with the famed stallions of Lipizza. But coming from a family of bakers, Hans is discouraged from ever becoming a rider. That is, until the day he is invited to watch the extraordinary Ballet of Lipizzaners—from the Imperial Box!—and his life is changed forever.


Marguerite Henry artfully includes authentic details about the skillful training of both horse and rider as she weaves the story of Hans and his beloved Lipizzan stallion, Borina. The brilliance of Hans’s dazzling public performances and his devotion to the art of classical riding make this story uniquely rich in history and horsemanship—a tale to be treasured by horse lovers of all ages.


This beloved story from Newbery Award–winning author Marguerite Henry features the original text and illustrations with gorgeous new cover art.
