I must say that I think this book will become an instant classic for young girls. I was taken with this books charm and characters. It will transport you back to your youth while reading. It is nice to see an author writing for young girls as something other than being a princess or being part of a gossip club. This is truly inspiring for young girls. The illustrations throughout the book are beautiful just like the story. I remember as a young girl wanting to live on a ranch with my own horse just like Moxie. Moxie is so excited when she wakes up on her 10th birthday. She has been dreaming of her own horse for years. She wants to be a barrel racer and win lots of awards like her Granny Rose. But, as we all know things don't always work out the way we plan in our heads. Moxie does get a horse but not the young one she was hoping for instead she gets Misty a 30 year old black mare with a sway back. That night when she has taken care of Misty and gone to bed she reads a note that was left for her under her pillow. Her Grandpa had left it for her saying that Misty may not look it but she is a very special mare and give her a chance. Special??? While she and her best friend Pickle are at a rodeo watching his cousin Sue barrel race they over hear something that will begin a mystery and adventure of a lifetime. And maybe just maybe she will begin to realize just how special Misty really is... This wonderful book has it all from wild horses, bad guys, adventure, mystery, and even some magic? I recommend this book to those from 5 who need it read to them to 9 and up who will enjoy it on their own. I recieved this book for an honest review

Reviewed by Vernita Naylor for Readers' Favorite A Wild Ride: The Adventures of Misty and Moxie Wyoming by Niki Danforth centers on Moxie Wyoming who is turning ten. She had always wanted to be like Granny Rose and imagined herself barrel racing and winning first prize, just as Granny Rose had done long ago. On her birthday she got a horse, but Misty was not what she expected. Misty had a sway back, was more than thirty years old, and reigned as the queen of the herd. In her day she would always be out front, leading the herd back to the corral, but now she was retired from the Darwin Ranch near Jackson. One day Moxie and her best friend, Pickle, heard about some wild Mustangs in the surrounding areas. She and Pickle embarked on an adventure to find out more about these wild Mustangs.  In the meantime, Moxie began to learn more about Misty. One day she discovered that Misty is no ordinary horse; she has magical powers. Misty, Moxie and Pickle decide to work together to see how they can help free the wild Mustangs ... and the adventure begins. A Wild Ride: The Adventures of Misty and Moxie Wyoming by Niki Danforth is a great children’s book because it takes you to another world, from ranch life to Misty the magical horse. I also like how Niki provided some illustrations to help tell the story. These illustrations help you to better visualize the essence of A Wild Ride. This book is ideal for those readers who also want to learn more about some of the elements of ranching.
