    This series is a must have for all young horse lovers!

    I love this series of books! These books not only teach readers information on handling horses, they also help readers discover truths about God's nature. They are easy to read and keep you interested from beginning to end. I have not found a book in this series yet that I have not liked.

    Book Two: Eager Star

    This is book two in the "Winnie the Horse Gentler" series. It is aimed at girls ages 8-12 and about a junior high girl who can make impossible horses into good ones. Her mother has died, and she learned how to do this from her mother.

    In this book, it's the start of the school year and her classmate, Grant, is to be riding in a barrell race. However, his horse "Eager Star" doesn't want to cooperate. She even bucks Grant off of her at one point in the book. Winnie's job is to make this horse that is frightened and nervous into a winner in one week.

    Also during the course of the book Winnie gets off on the wrong foot with her English teacher, and wouldn't you know it, but she turns in the WRONG journal this woman, which doesn't make things any better for Winnie.

    She also plans a slumber party, inviting the most popular girls in school. That doesn't go quite as expected for her.

    This was an enjoyable book even though I'm not the target age range. It is a quick read, and one that girls who love horses would be especially fond of. I am looking forward to reading the rest of this series.

    A great book in the series

    Another great book in the series. I enjoyed how the main character, Winnie, compares her new middle school classmates and teachers to different kinds of horses. This book had a great theme on how you can't impress God and that you don't need to impress others. I hope my daughter reads this book one day if she loves horses. I can't wait to read the next one!

    Velvetstar to Horseclan

    To the left of the waterfall was another ledge with a smaller cave opening. Inside, a small trickle of water made a quiet pool. The rest of the cave was lined with large comfortable nests. In the back was a separate, smaller area with a nest and a rocky shelves for storing medicines. -Medicine Den-

    Love the sceries

    I love these books and the starlight rescue. I feel for each poor animal, and pray for all of the people who are sick enough to do this, and the people who help those people, and the animals.

    "Yes, I am fine......for now....", she whispered, thinking of what would happen if the tom with the yellow eyes kept his promise, she shook her head violently,trying to rid her of the memory.
