Bon Bon

Book Two, Story Two

Bon Bon is a bay colored Quarter Horse mare (a girl horse) at the Capital Area Therapeutic Riding Association (CATRA), Grantville, PA. Bon Bon is ridden by many of the children there in lessons and in shows. Bon Bon is a large and gentle horse who many of the children love. She is quiet and easy to love. Since there were already so many “girls” in this story, I chose to make Bon Bon a gelding (a boy horse) in the story “Bon Bon’s Big Ears”. Since the real Bronwen rode the real Bon Bon, it was a team made in heaven to include them both in this story.

What Our Readers Say…

‘Wolfie the Most Beautiful Pony in the World’ was my favorite in Adventures At Green Apple Acres because I strive to see the inner beauty in people and other beings. As an example, my favorite dogs have always been mutts — not classically built, with features that can be easily judged, like purebreds at shows — but scruffy, one-of-a-kind companions, with personalities as unique as their outward appearances. And when I was in school, I avoided the cliques of girls who seemed overly concerned with their looks and clothing. Instead, I gravitated toward those who may not have been perfect on the outside, but they had a brain and a sense of humor, which I found much more interesting than a pretty dress or impeccable make-up and hair. So, like the character John, I can appreciate someone for all they have to offer, and see past what meets the eye.
