Running with the Horses

Running with the Horses - Alison Lester Running with Horses is a fictional story about the rescue of the Lipizzaner stallions from the Spanish Riding School in Vienna during World War II. In the story Nina and her father attempt to get to safety while riding on the old horse Zelda. Zelda gets weary during the trip and Nina and her father almost have to leave her behind.“’Come, Nina,’ Victor said. ‘We must keep riding.’ He ran a hand along the old mare’s neck. ‘I hope she will be all right.’As they began their descent down the other side of the mountain, the snow was almost up to the horses’ bellies. Nina’s feet felt frozen in her sodden boots, and Zelda’s steps were weak and faltering.”
