Before Howard Small became his owner, Pal lived through the experience of rough treatment at the hands of a man who thought the only way to train a horse was to break his spirit. But Pal refused to be broken, though he later leaned to become a good cow pony in gentler hands. Later he performed in the circus and at Maine fairs, and won many prizes at horse shows throughout New England. The tricks and stunts that Pal and his owner spent many hours in perfecting amazed every audience. Pal did everything but talk. About the Author: When Howard Small became owner of the horse who was later known as Monty's Pal he had a plenty experience with horses. He had never trained a performing horse, and as told in this book' it was really by accident that he discovered how easily he could communicate his wishes to Pal.
