Tails of Sweetbrier by Deanie Humphrys-Dunne is an incredible true story of a young girl who overcame many, many obstacles. With the support of a loving family, the incredible joy of riding horses and some awe inspiring determination, Deanie tells her tale.

Do you have a dream that feels too big to achieve? The important message Deanie puts across in this story of her life is that even when others say things are impossible, if you just keep persisting, you can achieve so much.

A specialist gave the opinion that Deanie would never be able to walk after she was still crawling at three years of age. Cerebral palsy was diagnosed.

Unconvinced, Deanie’s father determined to teach her to horse ride to strengthen her legs. This wasn’t without its setbacks and showing true determination, even at a young age Deanie would get back on every time she fell off.

Tails of Sweetbrier is a delightful read made that much more special because it is true. Anyone who reads it will be inspired to keep persisting with that dream, even when others say it’s impossible. A truly motivational read.

This a true story about Deanie Humphrys-Dunne and her physical challenges. Thanks to the encouragement and acceptance of her parents, when nature presented her with a physical weakness, her daddy would not give up on her. Was it a challenge to everyone? It may have been. But the Humphrys family seemed to thrive on challenge and stare it square in the eye. Deanie learned to work hard and take her lumps, but she kept working hard to be the best she could be at jumping horses. How interesting: Her method of overcoming physical hurdles was to jump them with a horse! Today she is a successful author, another challenge with endless competition. My own motto has been “Never Give Up!”, but I can see I was not the first to live these words of encouragement and tenacity. Deanie is to be congratulated. not only for her successes at horse shows, but for providing a living example for young readers that they can do whatever they want to do if they put forth the effort and are willing to learn from pitfalls. She is a true champion!
