Written and Illustrated by SAM SAVITT

This is the story of a surprising friendship between two horses. It all began when Vicki Jordan bought a half-starved pony.

Fattened up and restored to health, the pony turned out to be an escape artist and outlaw loved only by Pat, the black Thoroughbred who was the pride of the whole Jordan family. The handsome black horse and the wicked pony were inseparable pals.

Then the trouble began. The pony was sold. The events that followed changed the lives of Vicki, her family, and their beloved Pat. That pony had to be found.

VICKI AND THE BLACK HORSE is the exciting and often hilarious story of the year-long search for Pat's pony. Most of all it is the story of a girl whose love and sacrifice earned her the right to what she wanted most—a horse of her own.

Sam Savitt is one of today's outstanding illustrators of horses. A horse lover since early boyhood Mr. Savitt now lives on One-Horse Farm in North Salem, New York, with his wife, two children, an assortment of animals, and a black Thoroughbred that looks very much like Pat, the horse hero of this story

When he is not drawing horses or writing about them, Mr. Savitt spends most of his time riding, showing, or just taking care of his favorite animals. Among his other activities, Mr. Savitt trains jumpers and is official artist for the U.S. Equestrian Team.
