What I liked about this story was that it went beyond being another book about a wild stallion. It combines the history of one new breed of horse with the retelling of one horse's life. That retelling is done not strictly from the horse's point of view and not strictly from the human's point of view, but through a combination of both. As a reader, you are an outsider seeing life through a horse's eyes and mind. Dragon's actions are explained away from his way of thinking, the way he would see it...more
My childhood copy of A Horse Called Dragon showed all the wear and tear of a favorite; I probably read it ten times in 5th grade. Not a cozy wish-fulfillment horse story like my other childhood faves, but instead brings to life the fearful journey of a wild pony captured and transported away from the only life he's known.
Sheesh I read a lot of horsebooks when I was little....
