Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
A solid addition for independent-reader collections serving horse fans. (School Library Journal)
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-As three children prepare for a show, readers are introduced to the horses at White Lane Farm, the preparations, and the basic events. Conflict arises when one of the children must ride a more difficult-to-handle pony because his scheduled mount is lame. The descriptions and illustrations of the gymkhana are entertaining. Ample white space and compelling color photographs of young equestrians competing in English-style riding are appealing and encouraging for youngsters who may take lessons but don't own their own horses. Everything works out well for the riders, all of whom win ribbons. A solid addition for independent-reader collections serving horse fans.-Lisa Falk, Los Angeles Public Library Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
