Anton’s Fine Horse was inspired by an old Slovak proverb
- As long as you have the horse, why worry about a saddle?
It is a children’s story with a message for both children and adults about the cost of losing sight of what is truly important. Anton is a peasant boy who owns a fine horse (Kamil) in which he takes great pride. He acquires an elaborate saddle
for his horse, which ends up diverting his attention away from the horse itself ---- almost causing him to lose his beloved animal to neglect.
