Jumping Jack by Germano Zullo

A picture book about Jack, a champion show-jumping horse, whose partnership with his jockey has earned him international fame. Success is expected when Jack is on the track! Unfortunately, Jack's success seems to have stalled. He tumbles and struggles. What could possibly be wrong? His jockey takes him to the doctor and even on a two-week beach holiday to calm his nerves. Just when all hope seems lost, the jockeys glasses tumble onto Jack's face during a big competition, restoring Jack's former success and setting the stage for an all-new racing style
