Great Book For Young Girls

Andi Carter has just turned nine-which means she and her palomino, Taffy, are finally old enough to be a real horse-and-rider pair! Andi had just gotten a beautiful new saddle for her birthday, and she is sure she is finally ready to learn to trick ride like her friend Riley, even though her older brother, Chad, doesn't agree.
Riding to a secret spot her brother doesn't know about to practice, Andi finds a new friend to play with. But her fun friendship with Sadie is put to the test when they discover that their families are caught in a boundary dispute. Both Sadie's Pa and Chad are stubborn as mules and each is convinced he's right. Will Andi and Sadie hang on to their friendship in the midst of this adult fight?

My Take:
My daughter, who is nine, and I read this book together. She loves horses, so this book was right down her alley. She really liked the character Andi, who seems to be just like her! Andi gets a beautiful saddle for her birthday and now she can ride her horse, Taffy, all by herself. She really wants to learn how to trick ride, but her brother has told her firmly that she is not allowed to.
Andi's family lives on a cattle ranch, and her brother is the main man. He takes her to his favorite spot. Later while fishing there, Andi meets Sadie, a neighbor's daughter. The two families are in a serious dispute over the land, and Andi and Sadie's friendship is put to the test.
This book is filled with great humor, morals, and family values. It teaches lessons on obedience, friendship, and important life values. We enjoyed watching Andi as she learned and experienced adventure. It was fun to see how the families worked out their differences. 
I think young girls will enjoy this book and other books in this series. I know my daughter is looking forward to reading more of them. 
I was provided with a free copy of this book to read by Kregel. I was not required to review this book in a positive manner. All opinions are my own.
