For Love of a Horse by Patricia Leitch, 8th Scholastic paperback printing, TK3915, 1978, 220 pages.
DESCRIPTION: “Jenny saw the accident. From the top of the hill, she watched helplessly as the heavy oil truck swung around the curve in the road.
She heard the crunch of metal and the screech of terrified horses as the truck slammed into the horse trailer.
Tears streaming down her cheeks, she raced down the hill. Her horse- the beautiful chestnut Arab that she dreamed of owning- was trapped inside the trailer!” (from the back cover)
