Tucson horse play for the benefit of literacy

Posted: Updated:

Some Tucson area kids were out of school Thursday to see a horse show based on the book 'Black Stallion' put on by the famed Arabian Nights; all in the name of literacy.

More than 4,000 local kids nearly filled the Tucson convention center arena watching a fairly tale they've been reading for the past two months come to life right in front of them.
