Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-8-Jas Schuler, 13, knows that attacking Hugh Robicheaux, owner of the High Meadows Farm, after the death of her favorite horse was a serious offense. However, she never expects for the courts to place her under house arrest in a foster home, not even allowed to visit her grandfather after his stroke. Slowly Jasmine finds herself returning to a reasonably normal life by helping to keep Second Chance Farm running and finding comfort in caring for Shadow, an ill-treated horse bought by her temporary guardian, Miss Hahn. As the horse improves, Jas grows suspicious about Mr. Robicheaux's secretive actions surrounding the death of several other horses on his farm and is determined to bring him to justice. The author does an agreeable job of weaving suspense and character growth into a fluidly written mystery. She incorporates information about horse care seamlessly throughout each chapter. Readers will enjoy the interaction between Jas and the other characters. They will identify with the realistic situations and will find satisfaction in Jasmine's discoveries. This book won't need much space, since it will be grabbed by young mystery enthusiasts and horse-story fans alike.

This is a great book! It starts where Jas is waiting to see a judge for assaulting a rich horse owner who killed the horse she loved, Whirlwind. The horse owner, Hugh, claims Jas's grandfather accidentally poisoned the horse, but Jas knows that is not possible. Jas is sentenced to live under a kind of 'house arrest' on Second Chance Farm, a place where abused and neglected animals of all kinds are brought, cared for, and adopted out. Jas secretly collects clues as to how and why Hugh killed Whirlwind, whether he has killed before, and how she can prove it. In the meanwhile, she also takes care of and trains a large but sick horse bought at a 'meat auction,' begins to ride again, and comes to trust other people in her life. The story is well-written, fast-paced, poignant, and funny at times, and full of fascinating details about the juvenile system and about horses in general. Buy this book for yourself or the horse- or mystery-lover in your life!

This book is great. It is so greaat that I finished it in only two days because I couldn't put it down. And now I'm bummed cause the next one doesnt come out until March 2001. I also felt that this story connected with me. I have a horse that I feel that I got him for a reason. Like Shadow he proved his love by being willing to learn. He tought me how to ride, including 6 throws in 1 year. Although they were mainly my fault, but that isnt what we are talking about. This book should be read by all horse lovers, and people who just love a good book! I hope the wait for the sequel doesnt kill me!

The book shadow horse was an adventure to read. Alison Hart combined two of my fav. subjects, horses, and mystery. Often times I would find myself feeling as though I were in the book. With each horse that was sick or was killed it didn't just hurt Jas (one from book), it also hurt me. This story is amazing the way that it paints pictures in your head and it's as if you are there doing everything she is. This story about a lost horse and a lost soul is one of the greatest books I have ever read. I reccomend it to anyone.

This book is about a girl named Jas who assaulted the owner of her favorite horse after it dies. Jas knows that Hugh(the owner) poisoned Whirlwind(the horse), but he has the power to shift all the blame to her grandfather. Now Jas has to live with a foster parent on the Second Chance farm. She is determined to prove that Hugh poisoned Whirlwind, and when she rescues a mysterious horse, she knows that somehow that horse is connected to Whirlwind's death. This book is absolutley amazing, and I couldn't put it down. The ending is dissapointing because it leaves the mystery half solved. I wouldn't read it unless there is a sequel coming out.

I loved Shadow Horse, by Alison Hart. I have never read any books of hers before but I instantly fell in love with it. Jas seems so real and you can imagine exactly what she's doing and feeling. Alison Hart has become one of my favorite authors. And, although I'm not much of a mystery fan, the book was great. :)

I read this book a really long time ago, and i only just got around to reviewing it. Anyway, there's this girl named Jasmine (Jas) and she is totally nice, nonviolent (cough) person. At least she used to be nonviolent.
One day, after finding her favorite horse, whirlwind, dead, she attacked Hugh Robicheaux, the owner of the horse farm she lived on, because she belived that he killed whirlwind. she has to go on trial, and of course hugh wins. so she ends up in a foster care situation at a place called second chance farm. her guardian, miss hahn (also the owner of second chance farm), seems to have a few secrets of her own in her past. Jas doesn't really trust her at first.
so basically, the story is about jas finding this sick horse at an auction, caring for it, and discovering that he (the horse) is somehow connected to whirlwind's death. jas and her new friend chase have to do some secret (or so they thought) trespassing and spying to find out the truth about what happened to whirlwind.
