I really liked this addition to the Thoroughbred series! Ashleigh Griffen has to contend with so many different situations that effect her interactions with her favorite filly, Wonder, that the reader can't help but feel her frustration. All the things Ashleigh had to put up with made for an intense story. Basically, Wonder begins her training to become a champion racehorse and Ashleigh has to stand by and watch because she's not the owner and has "no reason" to be involved with Wonder's trainin ...more

Once again, I love this series! Ms. Campbell does a wonderful job telling Ashleigh's story and the struggles she faces with Wonder. Although Wonder isn't Ashleigh's horse, she feels like it because of how much time they've spent together, and she really wants Wonder to excel in her training. I love the other characters in these stories as well, such as Charlie, Ashleigh's parents, her best friend, and her siblings. They all play smaller roles, but they add so much to these stories. If you enjoye ...more

Hm, líbilo se mi, že kniha nevazuje tam kde předchozí přestala a není tam nějaká delší časová prodleva.
Samozřejmě pro svou vášeň ke koním jsem si oblíbila možnost nahlédnout do tajů výcviku, se kterým se setkám jen málokdy.

This book was a wholesome choice for middle school age. I really enjoyed the positive happy ending. I know it's cheesy, but I like it and it would help any girl interested in horses learn more about the ins and outs of caring for horses and preparing them to race. Teaches discipline.

I think I liked this book more than the rest of the series. The parts with wonder actually had me in distress!

Well, I think I'll be off to read another book- possibly another one in the Thoroughbred series?

Recommends it for: Any horse lover
These books focused my passion for horses on the Thoroughbred. I read these during my entire childhood and because of them, today I have re-trained 3 ex-racehorses and found them loving new homes. These books are perfect for fledgling horse lovers!

A particularly good installment in this series. Sometimes I wonder if I let my love for these books cloud my judgement, but this was a solid book. There were so many things that could have gone wrong or been done poorly, but they weren't.

Az elején még olyan gyerekesnek éreztem, később viszont megszoktam. Nagyon érdekes dolog ez a lóverseny. :) Az utolsó néhány oldalon halálra izgultam magam!!

Never whip a horse it makes them unsafe to ride and they act nervous!

I actually read this a looooong time ago. Good adolescent fiction. Especially for girls who love horses, which is exactly why I picked it up back then.

A great series for tweens that love horses and/or are interested in horseback riding or racing. Teaches about the struggles of working with animals and the benefits.
