When Black Beauty goes through all these experiences, he encounters illness and injury as well as having a good home and a good life. When you read this book, you will experience all these things and ride right along Black Beauty’s side!
Good Points
I really enjoyed this book a lot. I loved how Anna Sewell makes you feel what Black Beauty feels at that moment. I also liked how she explains all of the gear the horses have to wear. She describes their feelings about the gear, like if they prefer a special type of rein and things similar to that. The last thing I liked was that she explained things that happened around that time. For example, it says that almost every man drank and then rode their horses too hard. These are many things that made me love this book!
