Riding horses with his Grandfather, or Abuelo, a young boy learns valuable lessons that prepare him for the day when his family moves from the country to a city. When the boy lost the trail, his Abuelo tells him that it is good to laugh, even in hard situations. This lesson and others on themes such as courage, positive thinking, and appreciation for the natural world are all applied to the boy’s new situation as he remembers what Abuelo taught him. In this way, Abuelo rides with him always.
