Justin Morgan Had a Horse

Marguerite Henry

In the early years of our country, a poor school teacher, Justin Morgan, receives a horse and her tiny colt in payment for some work. He wishes he had been given money instead. Hoping that he might sell both horses for a fair price, he asks his student, Joel, to break in the colt. To his surprise, young Joel soon discovers that this small, brown creature has special abilities: “Bub” can pull more than a team of oxen, and he can run faster than a racehorse. But while the sturdy little runt wins contest after contest, all Joel wants is to save enough money to buy the beloved “Bub.” Justin Morgan Had a Horse is the story of the love between a young boy and a very special horse. A classic of children’s literature, it also traces the history of one of the most famous breeds of American horses—the Morgan. Marguerite Henry has earned enduring popularity for her children’s books, which include Misty of Chincoteague, also a Newbery Honor book.
