This one touched every horse loving bone in my body. The question Matthew asks Dallis after the competition. Would you love God even if things had gone even worse. A real point to ponder long and hard.
I like the nicely realistic way we learn about treating an injured horse and the time and patience required. Snow, a grey stallion from the mountains, is brought in by a mustang roundup after injuring his hind leg.
Dislikes; hold on now, if this girl has a brace on her leg after six years, how come she is suddenly able to ride? Does she take off the brace for riding? How are her leg muscles strong enough and when does she put the brace back on? It just seemed to vanish and she never needed physical therapy, massage, painkillers or anything.
Also, if the other kids jeer at this girl incessantly, why doesn't she tell someone she is being bullied? Are kids supposed to suffer in silence? What is her school's policy on bullying? Even her mom doesn't seem to care when she is told. Mom just says the other girls are not good Christians and ignores it instead of telling the school or having a word with the girls' parents.
Speaking of which, I do not like the religious indoctrination. But the author is marketing herself as a Christian author and that is up to her. I would suggest a few lines or a scene set in church would be fine, not badgering someone young and impressionable to swear that they have found the light.
What is 4H? Several American authors mention this club and assume everyone knows exactly what is going on, so they don't say what it stands for, what kids are doing and why. Well, sorry, the rest of the world does not have a clue.
Did the stallion tear his extensor tendon for a second time or not? Once would be bad enough, with the expectation of a year off work instead of the few months shown here, even with the stunningly good luck of no infection. Perhaps the brevity of the remedial care was why the wound, only partly healed, opened again. If it reopened, according to the vet, the horse would be unrideable and would certainly not have won a prize weeks later.
So I like a lot about this tale, with some very nice outdoor descriptions, but I am picky. Younger readers may enjoy the book more.
I was sent an e-ARC by the author. I chose to review. This is an unbiased review.
