Children's Literature - Carolyn Mott Ford
This is the fourth book in the "Sandy Lane Stables" series. Kate is the youngest rider at the stables and she plans to prove herself at the Hawthorn Horse Trials. As a result of her hard work, she has been chosen to ride Sandy Lane's star horse, Feather, in the trials. Suddenly her dream of winning is challenged. A new horse and a new rider show up at the stables. The horse, called Midnight, is jet-black with a white star on his forehead. Kate is immediately taken by the horse, but she finds the new rider, Izzy, an abrasive, cold adversary. Izzy and Kate remain unfriendly competitors until they are thrown together in an emergency. Midnight has colic, a serious ailment for the horse, and they must care for her until the vet shows up. As they talk and become close, Kate finds out that Izzy has a secret. Izzy's standoffish attitude and fierce desire to win are the result of the secret she has tried to keep. Kate and Izzy become friends and work together at the trials to bring about the best results for everyone.

This book of the Sandy Lane Stables series focuses on two girls, Izzy and Kate, and their roles as the plot takes shape. I liked how the author created this book to flip back and forth between the two girls' perspectives. Much of the story revolves around how the two young riders interact with each other. Kate wants to be the representative of Sandy Lane Stables at a local horse show. Izzy wants to keep and ride a horse that really isn't hers, but devises a way to keep the full story of Midnight a secret. To properly review this title, I'll have to say that there is one thing I don't like --- which is the lies and deceitfulness displayed while Izzy tries to keep a big secret from her parents. Some parents disapprove of their kids reading of bad behavior like this. Overall, a fun horse story. Girls especially will love this series.
