While Trickster recuperates from an accident, David must prove that both he and the horse can change their ways and become more reliable. This is a good story about taking responsibility for one's actions.
It was great especially for people who likes horses it covers a lot of things you should know if you want to ride horses. I learned a lot of good things for me because i want to be a vet. I rate this book four stars because there where some parts that could have been a little more dramatic like the other books.

David is a great kid who can’t seem to do anything right. He loves to cut corners. David volunteers with Dr. Mac. David had an experience at Mr. Quinn’s ranch last year that made it so he couldn’t be around horses. In this book, he has a chance to redeem himself. He finds challenges along the way. His love for a new horse named Trickster gives him incentive but, even so still seems to come up short.

This book has so much substances to it. My heart aches with the boy as he experiences some of the...more

I liked this book...I learned that it was the third in the series AFTER I read the book. I learned that it was the third in the series when I was adding the book to my "read" list. I was able to follow along with the plot even though it was the only book in the series that I read.
I learned that sometimes horses can be really brave with someone and they can survive with someone they really love. I think this book was super duper good because I love horses and it's just that it was really good.

The book is boring until you get half way through the book. But it is a great book. I love the vet volunteers series. I hate cats but the books about cats are really good.
Good for one of these. I like learning about animals and getting a new perspective.
