Once in a while, a story comes along that reminds readers why the most dramatic tales are often the true ones.
The Ghost Horse is the story of a one-eyed, club-footed thoroughbred racehorse and a journeyman trainer, Tim Snyder, who scraped together every penny he had to purchase the broken and unwanted filly. Snyder helped the horse overcome its deficiencies, eventually naming her in part after his deceased wife, Lisa, the great and only love of his life - a bright and sweet-tempered woman whose gentle demeanour seemed eerily reflected in the horse. The trainer (and now owner) was by nature a crusty and combative sort, the yin to his wife's yang, a racetrack lifer not easily moved by new-age mysticism or sentiment. And yet in those final days back in 2003, when Lisa Snyder lay in bed, her body ravaged by cancer, and held her husband's hand, she reassured him with a weak smile.
It's okay, she'd say. I'll see you again. I'm coming back as a horse.

Tim Snyder did not then believe in reincarnation. But he acknowledged the strangeness of this journey, the series of coincidences that brought them together.

Pre loved paperback with pages of photo plates in the centre of the book.
Good used condition apart from some creasing to front cover from handling.
