A Horse for Kate

Genre: Tweener

A horse of her own would be awesome. But Kate figures that might be a long way away, especially since she had to give up riding lessons and move to her late grandfather’s farm. Besides, it would be a lot more fun to have a best friend to ride with.

When Kate discovers a barn on their new farm that’s perfect for a horse, and a dusty bridle too, she starts to think that her dream might come true. Then she meets Tori at school, who is totally the best. So when they discover a thoroughbred that appears to be all alone, could it be the answer to her prayers?

Maybe. If she can convince her dad ... and figure out what’s going on with that horse.

A HORSE FOR KATE is an awesome book that teaches patience and the importance of family. Kate really wants a horse. There’s one she wants but someone else owns it. She doesn’t think the horse is cared for because the mane is knotty and the fur is matted and the hooves needs to be clipped. 

I wanted Kate to be able to get a horse, and I really hoped the horse wasn’t abused, and that it would be taken care of.

I recommend this book for anyone who likes to read about horses, or wants a horse. Great book.  5 stars.

Available in ebook and paperback. 240 pages.
