Big Bold & Brave Coloring book
We have relished following the journey of Emily Hamel and her high-jumping Corvett, who in 2021 finished 21st Kentucky and 14th at Maryland then rocked around Badminton earlier this year. Just when we thought we couldn’t adore them any more than we already do, Emily has published a children’s book that shares their heartwarming backstory, written by Deana Hamel with illustrations by Tom Monarch. She explains:
“The relationship between an animal and its owner is a unique connection. Learn about how Barry and I found each other, formed a partnership, and became great together. This is a special story of how the right team brings out greatness in everyone and helps dreams come true.”
The 64-page fully illustrated children’s book is sure to inspire readers and listeners of all ages. Pre-orders can be made here. All pre-orders come with a signed photo of Emily and Barry doing big, bold, and brave things together. Proceeds help fund their trip overseas and their training leading up to Burghley.
We thank Emily for generously sharing an excerpt of the book with EN. Enjoy, and be sure to purchase a copy to help support this indomitable team:
As time went on, Barry began to forget
his mother’s words.
He was still Barry the Big.
Barry the Bold.
and Barry the Brave.
But he also became Barry the Sad.
And over time he became Barry the
MAD because no one understood that all
he wanted was to be great!
And after awhile, he stopped dreaming
of being great….
