When Emma is plucked up and swept away by a fierce storm, Sox leads the rescue party. Will their courage and teamwork lead them to victory at Reining Horse Shows? This children’s book tells all.

Narrated by Sox himself, Backyard Horse Tales is for every child who has ever dreamed of a special horse and for anyone who has loved an equine partner. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to

About the Author
As a child, Jackie Anton chose to play the role of a wild horse when her siblings and friends chose cowboys or Indians. Her love of horses grew, as did her empathy for the horse. These traits developed a unique insight into the equine mind.

A mother and grandmother of two, she continues to ride daily. She lives on a mini-farm in rural Ohio. She shares her little slice of horse heaven with her husband, two Quarter Horses, a thirty-three-year-old Appaloosa, a big fuzzy dog, and a barn cat.
