Black George is beautiful and a gifted jumper. He sails over jumps with ease and enthusiasm, and loves doing it. Abby's father decides to enter his daughter and Black George in a high-class horse show. With more exposure to the upper class society, they might catch the eye of a wealthy horse buyer and get top dollar for selling Black George. Abby loves riding him and will be sad to see him sold, but she understands. She also knows that training him to his full potential will make him even better. But what she doesn't comprehend is why her heart seizes up in fear when her teacher raises the jump height to over four feet when she knows Black George can do it.
Abby's most favorite horse at the ranch is little Jack, the orphaned colt. His mom, Brown Jewel (or Pearl, as Abby secretly called her), died from colic not long after giving birth to Jack. Since then, Abby has taken over the care and training of Jack, and they have grown very close. But then a letter arrives from a private investigator who is working for a rich Texas rancher. A while back, someone had stolen a few of the rancher's prize horses, and the investigator suspects that the Lovitts had purchased one of the stolen mares. If Brown Jewel is proven to be the stolen mare, the owners are going to want to take her colt back to Texas.Read more ›
You may think that reading horse books for kids isn't for you, but please realize that most kids' books are great high-quality writing and top-notch stories. Authors such as Jane Smiley, who truly knows horses, continue to provide us with great horse stories. Give A Good Horse, and its prequel The Georges and The Jewels a try. You'll be impressed, no matter what your age.--Robin Moore
I am obsessed with horses and this is a perfect for girls who are obsessed with horses.
Although it took me a while to figure out when the book took place, once i did this book was even more fabulous.
Most of the time though, you have to kind of figure out and try to understand the whole worlthst Abby lives in, the religious wold and the date and time in history.
I highly recommend this book!
