They couldn’t cancel the show, they just couldn’t! This might be their only opportunity to get included in the rated show. She was pretty sure they didn’t have they money to replace the fence of the jumps. Why did this have to happen now, when the show was so close?

Book: Silver Spurs (Horses and Friends) by Miralee Ferrell, David C. Cook, 2015

Genre: Horse Book, Realistic Fiction
Target Audience: Girls 10-14
Subjects: Friendship, Love for others,
Summary: Having her own horse is great, but Kate longs for even more. She wants to see the stables at the farm actually filled. She wants to have a lesson horse that her friend Tori can use. She wants a trainer on staff who can teach her and Tori and others how to ride better. And if all of that isn’t enough, she wants their stables to house a competition! Her little brother’s autism takes a lot of money and focus though. It’s hard for her parents to commit to something this huge. And even if she got her parents on board, there’s a lot more obstacles to overcome – including the girl who bullies Kate and Tori at school being in need of a place to stable her horse.
Notes: Silver Spurs is the second in the Horses And Friends series. In this second book Kate is struggling with selfishness. She wants a lot of things and is willing to be somewhat disrespectful to her parents to get what she wants. She also has to learn a lesson about prayer again. She writes off the idea of asking God for what she wants since some bad things are still in her life – like her brother’s autism. However, she then remembers that He actually gave her what she wanted last time –so He apparently is listening. The third issue is with showing love to the girl who bullies her. She encounters a situation where the bully is in a difficult situation and gets a picture of why she treats people the way she does. She then has a chance to do something really extreme to help.
