Macadoo: Horses of the Maury River Stables

By Gigi Amateau

A sequel to Chancey of the Maury River, this heart-tugging story focuses on Macadoo — the gentle giant of the Maury River Stables.

When Macadoo is just a colt, he challenges his father — a huge Belgian stallion — in order to protect his dam. From that moment on, Mac knows that his purpose in life is to help others. From surviving a kill auction to learning how to be a vaulting horse to giving therapeutic riding lessons, Mac is always patient and never loses hope in his mission to serve others — and he finds the courage to “walk on” through even the most difficult circumstances. Told with insight and compassion from Macadoo’s point of view, this is a story that all horse lovers will cherish.

  • A new middle-grade novel from Gigi Amateau that s perfect for horse lovers!
  • Told from Macadoo s point of view, in the tradition of such classic horse stories as Black Beauty.
  • Works as a stand-alone novel, but also features favorite characters from Chancey of the Maury River.
