Thirteen-year old Kate and her friends came up with the perfect way to raise money for her autistic younger brother and others to attend summer camp—a horse scavenger hunt! As local businesses donate money and prizes, Kate keeps the entry fees in her mom’s antique jewelry box.

But when the box and the money disappear, Kate and her friends must unravel the clues, hold on to hope, and solve the mystery along the Blue Ribbon Trail Ride

 My thoughts:

Blue Ribbon Trail Ride is another great addition to the Horses and Friends series! Miralee Ferrell’s wonderful storytelling ability combined with her love and knowledge of horses make this a delightful series for young readers. This book reads well as a stand-alone story; however, the friendships that are shared are best understood by reading the books in order.

Not only is Blue Ribbon Trail Ride engaging and entertaining, it also emphasizes the importance of kindness, friendship, and forgiveness. Kate and her friends are great characters and a scavenger hunt, amateur sleuthing, and a sting operation are just a few of their adventures. I really enjoyed this story, as well as the other books in the series, and am so glad to know there are two more books forthcoming!

There are several bonus features in the back of the book that I think young readers will really enjoy. Discussion questions are included as “Secrets for Your Diary” and each one includes a note from Kate. Suggestions for a horse-themed scavenger hunt are also included, followed by a note from the author.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review. All thoughts expressed are my own.
