This book was great! The story is about a young girl who is starting to take riding lessons for the first time. Young children could really relate to this because, if they were in the same situation, they would have the same feelings as the main character. She's both excited and scared. In addition to riding the horse, the story also goes through showing how to clean and help care for horses. It's a wonderful story to help young children understand that there is more that needs to be done besides just riding the horse. The animals must be cared for also. I would definitely recommend this book!

We are gradually getting all the Stablemates Series for our 5-year old granddaughter who is horse crazy. Each book acquaints the reader with a specific breed and offers some redeeming plot albeit very simply treated for this age group. This one addresses abandonment, compassion and nurture¿all issues a child would respond to at a gut level and elicit worthwhile discussion.
