The horse, Bree, and his boy, Shasta are fleeing their slavery, heading north to Narnia and freedom. Along the way, they join the horse, Hwin, and her girl, Aravis, who is fleeing an arranged marriage. Together they ride north across the desert. Meanwhile, the vengeful Calormen prince Rabadash determines to destroy Archenland and invade Narnia to capture Queen Susan and make her his bride.

When Shasta and Aravis discover his plan they must warn Archenland in time, or all is lost. Their journey to "Narnia and the North" involves difficult and dangerous situations, through which they come to realize that they are being guided by none other than Aslan himself! The surprise that awaits Shasta at the end of his journey is more than he ever dreamed of!

    We really enjoyed the study

    Posted by Bryan T. on 5th Oct 2015

    We really enjoyed the study guide and purchased two more for the remainder of the Narnia series. The questions were accurate and thought-provoking, but not so complicated that my 6th grader could not work independently.

    This is the third study

    Posted by Tina R. on 20th Dec 2014

    This is the third study guide we have purchased from Progeny Press and it proves to stand equal to the superior quality of the previous study guides. Will always use study guides from Progeny Press, they do not disappoint. I know once we complete The Horse and His Boy, my grandson will have a deeper understanding of the story than just by reading.
