Product Description

The pinto has won trophies, but the real champion is the blind girl who rides him. Katie doesn't like horses-or so she says, until she meets Keystone Stables' champion barrel racer, Boomerang. Can a blind girl learn to ride a horse? With Skye's help, the answer is yes!

It's a summer of exciting discoveries for Katie. But Skye, too, is learning a lesson about patience as she shares the struggles of her new special-needs friend. Being blind isn't easy, especially when Katie's parents are separated. Her anger at them and at God can make Katie hard to be around.Then Katie sets a very special goal for herself and Boomerang. Achieving it will take courage-but the prize could be greater than any blue ribbon.

Publisher's Description

In the fifth book of the Keystone Stables series, perfect for girls who love horses and horse fiction, foster child Skye hopes to find a new friend in Katie, a blind girl who is encountering horses for the first time—but Katie’s anger might end their relationship before it really starts.

When Skye hears that a blind girl named Katie Thomas will be coming to Keystone Stables to learn to ride horses, she’s determined to do whatever she can to make the new girl feel at home. That includes finding Katie the perfect horse to ride. Through Boomerang, a champion barrel racing pinto, Katie gains an excitement for riding lessons—but her recurring anger over her parents’ separation and upcoming divorce, as well as her blindness, leads to tensions in the barn and between Katie and Skye. Then Katie asks Skye to help her reach a very special goal for herself and Boomerang in hopes of getting both her parents to watch her ride at the same time. Achieving it will take courage—but the prize could be greater than any blue ribbon.

  • features a character with special needs
  • contains extensive back matter on different horse breeds, how to care for them, and horsemanship, as well as facts, diagrams, and a glossary of horse terms so girls can better know their favorite animal

Author/Artist Review

Author: Marsha Hubler
Located in: Middleburg, PA
Submitted: October 29, 2010

    Tell us a little about yourself.  With a M.Ed. and over 40 years experience with children of all ages, I'm now a homeschool consultant in PA as well as an author. I live with my husband and two dogs, Skippy and Honey. We had foster kids and horses a while ago, and all my fiction books are actually based on a lot of fact.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I wanted to write the Keystone Stables Series to, first of all, share Christ's redeeming love and salvation with kids. I also wanted to challenge the reader to live a life pleasing to our Lord.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I pray that readers will either accept Christ as their Savior or dedicate themselves to walk worthy of His love and calling in each of their lives.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  By working on this project, I came to know a young blind man who was my resource person. His life impacted me greatly because of his positive attitude and "can do" spirit.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  My number one influence would be the Bible. Other sources of inspiration include Christian editors with whom I've worked and other Christian writers I've met at writers' conferences. My church family has been an invaluable encouragement as well.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." 1 Corinthians 15: 10a "But by the grace of God I am what I am." John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
