Amazon stars.gifA must read for the young ladies involved in 4-H horse projects. As a former horse show "Mom" and grandmother of horse-oriented youth, I felt I was reliving a couple of chapters in my earlier life, not to mention occasionally being on the edge of my chair as the story unfolds. -- Amazon reader reviews
