Tony wants nothing more than to be a great jumper. One problem...Tony is a small miniature horse, and the big horses never let him forget it, teasing him about his size every chance they get. Tony meets Smokey, another miniature horse like him, and with a lot of practice and even more courage, Tony becomes the horse he has always wanted to be, regardless of his size. A sweet book of friendship and courage, Tony's Big Jump will have you rooting for the "big" horse in the "small" body.
