Today I am reviewing Blue Ribbon Trail Ride, book four of the Horses and Friends series by Miralee Ferrell.
Here is a brief synopsis:
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 first experience on a horse was when I was eleven years old, riding with my younger cousin, with her dad following close behind us on his horse. In less than five minutes, the horse spooked and threw us off. My uncle was quick to jump in and help us, but I refused to get back on the horse.
That was more than forty years ago, and I never felt inclined to ride again. Of course, my family never kept horses; if I had grown up around horses, they might have played an important part of my life.
My children — and grandchildren — have ridden horses, whenever they had the chance. And they love to read stories about horses.
Miralee Ferrell has written an awesome series, capturing the excitement Kate and her friends experience. These are family stories, suitable for all ages. And unlike some YA stories, these stories share the morals and character traits that we all want to instill in our children.
There is also a realness in the stories that make it easy for readers to identify with the characters, like Kate, but also Kate’s brother, who has autism. They learn that not everyone behaves as they should, especially a few unfriendly people at school.
These stories are written for young adults, more specifically ages 8-12, but in my opinion, they are stories that the whole family will enjoy! So get your own copies and read them.
God Bless You!
