The Black Stallion by Walter Farley

Alec and a giant black stallion are shipwrecked on a small island. Slowly, the two become friends and the wild horse allows Alec to ride him. Once they get home, Alec’s neighbor encourages Alec to learn to race the Black. After a while, a reporter learns about the Black and Alec finds himself invited to race the two best horses in horseracing.

The Black Stallion was a fine book, but I didn’t love it. It was just okay. There wasn’t anything wrong with the book. I was just not interested in the subject matter. It would be an excellent book for anyone who loves horses.
