What's it all about?
Ace has loads of talent and big dreams. He also has a big problem. Well, three problems, actually – three horses at Clip-Clop School For Horses bully Ace every day. But help is at hand, or hoof, in the shape of Holly from the Crusaders Horses. Not only is Holly Ace's hero she also knows exactly what to do to make the bullying stop. And so, like every great story with a powerful message, Ace, A Horsey Tail of Courage has a happy ending.
It is a tale of friendship and redemption. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll learn. With stunning illustrations, and a witty, poignant storyline, Bayleys, together with the BNZ Crusaders and the backing of Bullying-Free NZ, have created a charming children's storybook that reminds us that the first step to change for good is to talk about it.

Together we can prevent bullying in Aotearoa
At Bayleys we believe every child has the right to feel safe, valued and accepted, that’s why we teamed up with the BNZ Crusaders to create this book Ace, A Horsey Tail of Courage, starring the Crusaders Horses, which helps us understand bullying and what we can all do to tackle it head on.
Ace, A Horsey Tail of Courage encourages children to speak-up and report incidents of bullying whether they are a victim or witness of bullying or even if they are a bully - while reinforcing the message that each and every child matters.
