Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I once had my foot stepped on by my horse, Yankee, and my father said "You should have anticipated it."  If you keep riding and working with horses, what you can anticipate is being stepped on, smushed against the wall, and run under a tree limb leaving you on the ground while the horse keeps going.  Someday you'll know when these things are going to happen and maybe move your foot away in time.  Probably not.  The good news is you're going to love it, even as you limp away.

I got this book a couple days ago and loved it. It was a little short, but otherwise a great book! Perfect for young horse lovers like me. :)I thought the way the author wrote about the horses was correct, too.

For two years now, Jackie has been riding and taking care of Moose, her friends' sixteen-year-old horse. She longs for a horse of her own. Naturally, her parents are resistant to the idea, worrying not only about the cost of buying one, but also the expense and time that would go into its daily care. Then her father hears about a horse to be given away to the right person. The owner is going away to college and is looking for a good home for the horse she has had since she was twelve.

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.

Dream Horse is an entertaining story that will appeal to middle-grade girls who love horses. Main character Jackie idealizes the experience of having a horse of her own for the first time when she has a chance to own Charlie, a handsome bay trained as a show horse who has won numerous ribbons. She and her friend Lisa learn, however, that caring for her own horse has its challenges. First, Charlie is spooked during a vet visit, and Jackie sprains her ankle in the process of catching him. Next, he misbehaves during lessons and refuses to canter in the ring with other horses, and Jackie takes a tumble. He stubbornly comes to a standstill at jumps and runs amok when he is bothered by smoke from a blacksmith's forge. When Charlie and Lisa's horse escape and lead the girls in and out of yards and vegetable gardens, the girls are in trouble with the police as Charlie gains the "upper hoof." Jackie finally gets Charlie to gallop only to be dumped in a mud puddle during a trail ride.

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.

When I got this book, I knew that it was for a younger audience, that didn't bother me though. I read many horse books like this for a younger audience. This one I must say, was so... I just could not finish reading it, in infuriated me that much.

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.
