Review — Abby’s Pony Love

Little girls love horses and Abby is no exception. Unlike the wealthy kids at the nearby stables, with parents who can buy them ponies and pay for lessons, Abby has to pursue her love of horses on her own. Abby’s parents my not have the means to buy her a horse, but they do support her in other ways, allowing her to take on a job at the local stables. But once there, Abby falls in love with someone else’s horse, and working around these beautiful animals is no longer enough.

Secretly naming the palomino mare Glory, Abby overlooks all the pony’s antics, of which there are many, believing her to be the most amazing horse in the world. Something every little girl needs, and every horse should have.

Unfortunately, life at the barn isn’t simple. If Glory (named Starlet by her owner) doesn’t behave, she may have to move to another stables. Or worse yet, the real owner may decide she’s too much trouble, and sell her to someone else. Someone who will take Glory far away where Abby will never see her again.

Abby desperately searches for a solution. She wants nothing else in life but to make Glory her own. But how can she possibly earn enough money to buy her dream horse? And what should she do about Glory’s owner? A girl she wants to see fail, and yet needs at the same time.

A sweet tale about a girl’s love for horses, working hard to achieve a goal, and finding solutions to difficult problems, Abby’s Pony Love is a terrific read. It’s perfect for young girls who understand the dream of being owned by a horse, and parents who remember what it feels like to want something with their whole heart.

My golden boy Jasper approves.

    I’m so glad that Jasper approves. 🙂 No doubt he could set Glory straight. Quoting you, if you don’t mind. Thank you for reading and reviewing.

      He would! Though Jasper loves his mares. I’d be honored to have you to quote. Congratulations on your launch.
