After having a stable for several years, Barbara turned to writing. One of her traditionally published books was turned into a television movie (Will the Real Renie Lake Please Stand up, now available as Unheard), and another opened the door to writing for television (In Real Life I'm Just Kate now available as Just Kate). She has written fiction and nonfiction and loves the freedom of ebooks where she has become Queen of All She Surveys, as long as it's on her desktop.

Jackie is giddy with excitement. Charlie is a show horse, a gentleman. She won't have any trouble with him. Or so she thinks. In fact, Charlie has very different ideas. He bolts every chance he gets, sailing effortlessly over fences and other obstacles. But when Jackie is riding him, he is sluggish and stubborn. If Jackie didn't know better, she would swear he actually grins when he is at his most obstreperous. Will she ever get this beautiful horse to work with her instead of against her?
Dream Horse is an easy read, perfect for the young horse enthusiast. I recommend it for all such middle grade readers.
Jackie wants to take part in the 4-H county fair, but she has almost come to believe that Moose, the horse she trained on and complained about, is better. Afraid to be the laughingstock of the fair, she is reluctant to use the stick on Charlie, but her instructor tells her that's the only way he will listen and respect her. Almost ready to return Charlie to his original owner, she finally learns that training involves more than jumping on a horse and riding. Jackie figures out what needs to happen to make riding a pleasant experience for them both. She learns just how much she loves Charlie when he gets out and eats apples until his digestive tract is blocked, resulting in a bout of colic.
My daughter really enjoyed this book.Read more ›
For starters on facts. Numerous times they keep complaining on the horse being so old and ancient and he can barely more any more but they mention the horse is 16. 16! That it NOT old for a horse. Our seventeen year old mare is a beautiful mover and is really great at barrel racing. She still has got it. Now our old boy, 23, yea he is old. I don't want the excuse the characters were children, I know of children younger than that who know much better.
That's the thing exactly. How old is the main character? I was guessing around 12 it seemed? Boy does she have a crazy imagination! I can let that one go though, my 10 year old brother does as well. The thing is how she talks. She sounds like a very immature child. The last time I read a book where a child talked like that was in the books about 6 year old Junie B. Jones! Again referring to my 10 year old brother, he sounds nothing like that. He sounds grown up and he's so polite around people. This girl reminds me more of my 6 year old cousin the way she talks. If I felt like going back into the book I'd quote some things, but I don't even feel to want to do even that.
Eventually I just got fed up with. In retrospect, this story may as well be more realistic than any other. 12 year olds now-a-days most likely do sound like whiny "I know everything" "This is absolutely perfect" "I can do whatever I want" Kind of stuff any how. Logically correct then. but I don't want to read a story like that.
