Kate’s dream of owning a horse has finally happened. But now her best friend Tori has no money to buy a horse. So Kate comes up with a plan—she’ll raise money by boarding horses and hosting a show in her family’s barn.

It seems the perfect solution until Melissa, the girl who disses Kate and Tori at school, shows up to board her horse, determined to compete in their show and win the silver spurs. Will their plan be ruined—or does God have something better in store for them all?


My thoughts:

Silver Spurs, Book 2 in the Horses and Friends series, is a wonderful story! Not only is Silver Spurs engaging and entertaining, it also emphasizes strong Christian values.

I loved continuing the story of Kate and her best friend Tori! I really enjoy their friendship and their interactions with each other and the people around them. In this story, Kate and her friends learn a valuable lesson about offering kindness and friendship, even in difficult situations.

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. A recipe for Colt’s favorite horse cookies is also included, followed by a note from the author. I really enjoyed Silver Spurs and look forward to more books in this great series!

I received a complimentary e-copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review. I appreciate the opportunity to read this story and share my thoughts.
