"As a former horse-crazy tween and current horsewoman I found the content interesting and an enjoyable read. The stories should interest girls who are at that critical age when life is one bewildering challenge after another while increasing their understanding of horses and themselves. Kudus to Rebecca!"
Patricia Meyer, Just For You Ministries Inc.
"You don't have to be a girl or a horse lover to enjoy this insightful book. The author has a knack for seeing everyday experiences as parables that can help us navigate life's challenges. Great Horse Stories for Girls offers solid insights for young (and not-so-young) people. Highly recommended!
"Just like Rebecca's previous books, I found this book lovely, entertaining and so very inspirational. Her stories will transport you into the pasture or into the saddle with her. While I am an adult, I still enjoyed the short stories and inspirational insights. Rebecca never disappoints and I can highly recommend her books to anyone. Young, horse crazy girls in particular will love this book."
"While I was reading Rebecca's book, I felt as if she was in the same room telling me about her wonderful horse family and how they enrich her life. I highly recommend this book to all those horse crazy girls out there, young and old; your life will truly be enriched. Regardless of your age, you will find Rebecca's book entertaining as well as inspirational."
"Perfectly presented for home-schoolers, Christian horse campers, and any other group of young ladies eager to know more about real life with horses and the faithfulness of our Lord. Maybe your horse-crazy daughter or granddaughter is ready for 'that talk.' This book is a perfect way to open the discussion of how young ladies become young women with solid foundations for the futureor perhaps to motivate self-directed study. Great Horse Stories for Girls gives you many ways to use it to bless that special someone."
Lynn Baber, author and equine clinician
"Rebecca has captured the true essence of what it is like to grow from being a little girl to a young woman. Great Horse Stories for Girls will be a required reading for my granddaughters. Rebecca shows her readers a lot of her true self while her descriptive writing brings you right alongside her almost as if you were there sharing the experience with her. I thoroughly enjoyed the book"
Ruth A. Simmons
"Rebecca will draw you into the story and make you feel like you are there and can feel the horse's warm breath on your hand and the soft touch of its velvet noses. Even as a young Christian I can understand the message that Rebecca so artfully weaves from the story and it makes me feel happy and close to tears at the same time. In Rebecca's book she keeps reminding us to trust in the Lord and ask him first before doing something and even if we make a mistake he is always there to help us. For me that is very encouraging as a Christian. I have thoroughly enjoyed this book and all Rebecca's books and I can guarantee that you will too.
"Rebecca freely shares the mistakes she made including how she learned a few things the hard way and applies what she learned from mistakes and how God can take the circumstances and turn them into a blessing. A very good book for horse-crazy girls!"
Kim Shanks, Founder and President of Christian Horse-lover's Club Inc., author of the CHC Inc. curriculum
KarenMechanicsvilleGender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful Book!August 19, 2015KarenMechanicsvilleGender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I thoroughly enjoyed reading Rebecca Ondov's book, "Great Horse Stories for Girls." Being a horse person, I can identify with Rebecca's love for horses.
Rebecca's book is designed to encourage young girls to think about what they read by asking questions and researching topics via sources such as the Internet. She concludes each chapter with sections titled, "Just Between You and Me," and "Just For Fun." Not only does Rebecca write about her horses and mules, but she shares her belief in God and how He helps guide her decisions. As with all of us, we have our moments of disappointment and questioning our actions, but Rebecca illustrates that putting our trust in God will help get us through our troubles and self doubts.
While I was reading Rebecca's book, I felt as if she was in the same room telling me about her wonderful horse family and how they enrich her life. I highly recommend this book to all those horse crazy girls out there, young and old; your life will truly be enriched. Regardless of your age, you will find Rebecca's book entertaining as well as inspirational.

Great Horse Stories for Girlsis not just for girls, but for anyone who has a passion for animals and/or loves a good story!! Rebecca will draw you into the story and make you feel like you are there and can feel the horses warm breath on your hand and the soft touch of its velvet nose. You will look into the gentle affectionate eyes and watch the muscles ripple in its body with power and grace only God could have made in the horse.
Each chapter is a different section of one story with questions helping the reader consider her own responses or reactions to the biblical aspects Rebecca reveals in each short but touching blurb of one big fantastic adventure in her life. Fun facts about horses are included at the end of each chapter. This format lends itself well to be used as a bible study or in small groups and will enthrall everyone!
Even as a young Christian I can understand the message that Rebecca so artfully weaves from the story and it makes me feel happy and close to tears at the same time. In Rebeccas book she keeps reminding us to trust in the Lord and ask him first before doing something and even if we make a mistake he is always there to help us. For me that is very encouraging as a Christian.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this book and all Rebeccas books and I can guarantee that you will too.
