A heartbroken little princess finds love, happiness and an amazing destiny when she is given a foal for her sixth birthday in this touching story based on the true life story of HRH Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein. When Princess Haya’s mother is killed in an accident, the little girl becomes increasing withdrawn and silent. To help his sad little daughter, her father gives her the one thing that gives her joy: a horse of her own. Princess Haya has great dreams for herself and her little foal. One day they will be great show jumping champions. And Princess Haya makes sure the dream will come true.
The Princess and the Foal by Stacy Gregg
Princess Haya, daughter of the King of Jordan, loves her family more than anything. So when tragedy strikes at its heart, she is devastated. The Princess becomes ever more withdrawn until, on her birthday, the King gives her a life-changing present. An incredible new friendship grows and the heartbroken princess begins to dream of an extraordinary future.
Inspired by the real-life story of Olympic equestrienne Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein and set against the exotic backdrop of Arabia, this novel is destined to become a modern classic. A former journalist, Stacy undertook extensive research for this book, travelling to Jordan at the request of Princess Haya. Given unprecedented access to the palaces and royal stables, she conducted lengthy interviews with Her Royal Highness, Her family and friends to bring 'The Princess and the Foal' to life.
