Silver Spurs was a very educational book for me. I learned so much about the workings of a horse riding competition. I appreciated that this story encouraged the readers to look deeper into the reasons people may act the way they do. Forgiveness and kindness weave their way through this exciting story, as well as the importance of hard work and determination. My nine year old’s thoughts: ” I like how Kate is really devoted to her horse and spends a lot of time with her. She takes good care of her.”

Miralee Ferrell in her new book, “Silver Spurs” Book Two in the Horses and Friends series published by David C. Cook introduces us to Kate Ferris. From the Back Cover: Kate’s dream of running her own riding stable has just one hurdle… Kate lives to ride her horse and compete in shows. But her best friend, Tori, has no horse to ride and no money to buy one. So Kate comes up with a plan: she will board horses in her family’s empty barn–after all, it has plenty of empty stalls and an outdoor arena–and maybe they can even host a horse show and give a set of silver spurs to the championship rider. It seems like the perfect solution until Melissa, the most spoiled girl at school, shows up as the first boarder and is determined to win the silver spurs. Will their plans be ruined—or does God have something even better in store for them all? Silver Spurs is a tale of overcoming fears and trusting God with your dreams. It is time to dream on a farm field in Oregon. This is a continuation of the story about a girl, friendship, and horses. This is a book about a dream. This is all about Kate and Tori as Tori wants to ride as well but has no money for a horse. So Kate comes up with a brilliant idea that can help both of them. However the mean girl from school also wants what they want. It is up to God to bring all of these dreams to pass. Kate, Tori and even Melissa are remarkable characters that you fall in love with and root for to succeed. This is one exciting book that will keep you flipping pages to keep up with the story. You and your kids are going to enjoy this book. They will enjoy it even more if you read it with them (probably because they like you a lot). I am looking forward to the next book in this series with great interest. Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from David C Cook for this review.

So Excited to Find This Horse Story for Kids!! Wow!! I have to say I am very excited about Miralee Ferrell's new series for kids, Horses and Friends, after reading Silver Spurs, her second book. I have not read her first, so there is enough back story for the book to stand alone. Miralee has done a fantastic job of presenting young teens with the realistic problems they can face. I love her accurate portrayal of a family with an autistic child. Obviously, she is familiar with someone who deals with that on a daily basis. She also presents longings of a young teen's heart well, plus the hazards of negotiating a recent move and new friendships, competition, and a new school. What made me the most excited to see, though, was how Miralee wove faith in God into the story. This family made turning to God for help their first go-to, not their last. I am thrilled not only to recommend this book to the general public, but to pass it on to my own horse-loving niece. I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review, but I was not required to write a positive review.

Silver Spurs, Book 2 in the Horses and Friends series, is a wonderful story! Not only is Silver Spurs engaging and entertaining, it also emphasizes strong Christian values. I loved continuing the story of Kate and her best friend Tori! I really enjoy their friendship and their interactions with each other and the people around them. In this story, Kate and her friends learn a valuable lesson about offering kindness and friendship, even in difficult situations. There are several bonus features in the back of the book that I think young readers will really enjoy. Discussion questions are included as “Secrets for Your Diary” and each one includes a note from Kate. A recipe for Colt’s favorite horse cookies is also included, followed by a note from the author. I really enjoyed Silver Spurs and look forward to more books in this great series! I received a complimentary e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I appreciate the opportunity to read this story and share my honest opinion.

This book is perfect for 8-12 year old horse lovers. I loved spending more time with Kate, her family, and her friends. This book is a wonderful continuation of their lives. Kate, Tori, and Colt are very realistic middle school age kids. They are very focused on what they want. Kate especially is open with her frustration whenever it looks like things aren’t going to go the way she wants them to. As she faces obstacles she is learning to take things to God in prayer. This is helping her learn to trust Him with her dreams and to help her overcome her fears. The descriptions of the horse show itself and the care of the horses were wonderfully written. I could picture what was taking place in my mind. This made the story very entertaining to read. I received a free eBook copy from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.
