Darken is a quirky little horse who is exceptionally timid, quick as a cat, and apparently smarter than anyone ever imagined. With 40 years of training experience under her belt, his owner, Jan Sharp, expects him to be her crowning training achievement - as both a trick and show horse. Instead, Darken sees horse-eating monsters behind every bush, suffers medical emergencies, and does his best to frustrate her at every turn. All that changes the day Darken walks out of his stall and proves just how smart he really is.
As he works to overcome his many challenges, Jan is rewarded by watching him blossom. Along the way Jan learns it the little steps and victories in life that should be savored, instead of hurried past in an attempt to reach greater goals. Ride along on the five-year journey Darken takes to find his own path in life, and the amazing way he uses his talents to help others. Climb aboard, hold on tight, and enjoy the ride.
