Publisher's Description

Kate’s dream of owning a horse has finally happened. But now her best friend Tori has no money to buy a horse. So Kate comes up with a plan—she’ll raise money by boarding horses and hosting a show in her family’s barn.

It seems the perfect solution until Melissa, the girl who disses Kate and Tori at school, shows up to board her horse, determined to compete in their show and win the silver spurs. Will their plan be ruined—or does God have something better in store for them all?

Silver Spurs is a tale of overcoming fears and trusting God with your dreams.

    Kate, Tori and Colt return in book number 2 of the Horses and Friends series and is even better than A Horse For Kate if I do say so myself! In this book Kate talks her parents into boarding horses. This book teaches responsibility if you want something you have to work for it; Friendshiptrue friends will always be your friends no matter what. Nan, Kate's mother is always there for her and gives her really good advice. When Kate complains to her mom about Melissa-a girl who is mean to her-her mother tells her not to judge to quickly because you don't know what's going on behind the scenes. That was my favorite piece of advice.

    I really liked how Pete, Kate's brother had a bigger part in this book. I have a soft spot in my heart for kids with disabilities and found myself rejoicing with his triumphs. I also found myself getting excited along with the kids and only a good Author has the ability to draw you into a story like that!

    This review was written for #2: Silver Spurs.
    Silver Spurs was a very educational book for me. I learned so much about the workings of a horse riding competition. I appreciated that this story encouraged the readers to look deeper into the reasons people may act the way they do. Forgiveness and kindness weave their way through this exciting story, as well as the importance of hard work and determination.

    My nine year olds thoughts: I like how Kate is really devoted to her horse and spends a lot of time with her. She takes good care of her.

    This is the second in the Horses and Friends series and is another great story for young readers.

    Kate begs her parents to make their farm into a boarding stable with a trainer. They make sure she understands it will be lots of work and that's OK with her. Once the business is up and running, disaster strikes when a mean girl from school boards her horse. Then the family is offered the opportunity to have a competition at their farm. A freak windstorm causes a tree to crash down on the fence, breaking it and some of the new jumps. The future looks dim.

    I continue to be impressed with the lessons that are found in this series. In this one, Kate succumbs to a bit of sibling jealousy. Her autistic brother requires so much attention and their parent's money. Kate has to learn to trust that her parents will do what's best for her too. Another lesson is about anger. Sometimes we get mad at someone for their behavior when we don't know their story. Kate has a revealing experience that helps explain the mean girl's behavior and Kate is much more sympathetic after it. Another lesson Kate learns is about responsibility. Cleaning the horse stalls is hard work and she get's tired of it. Kate also learns about loyalty among friends and about sacrificing so someone else can do their best.

    The story is entertaining and great at revealing lots of good moral lessons for young readers. I highly recommend it for girls aged 8 12 who like horses.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book through Litfuse for the purpose of an independent and honest review.

    Miralee Ferrell in her new book, Silver Spurs Book Two in the Horses and Friends series published by David C. Cook introduces us to Kate Ferris.

    From the Back Cover: Kates dream of running her own riding stable has just one hurdle

    Kate lives to ride her horse and compete in shows. But her best friend, Tori, has no horse to ride and no money to buy one. So Kate comes up with a plan: she will board horses in her familys empty barnafter all, it has plenty of empty stalls and an outdoor arenaand maybe they can even host a horse show and give a set of silver spurs to the championship rider.

    It seems like the perfect solution until Melissa, the most spoiled girl at school, shows up as the first boarder and is determined to win the silver spurs. Will their plans be ruinedor does God have something even better in store for them all?

    Silver Spurs is a tale of overcoming fears and trusting God with your dreams.

    It is time to dream on a farm field in Oregon. This is a continuation of the story about a girl, friendship, and horses. This is a book about a dream. This is all about Kate and Tori as Tori wants to ride as well but has no money for a horse. So Kate comes up with a brilliant idea that can help both of them. However the mean girl from school also wants what they want. It is up to God to bring all of these dreams to pass. Kate, Tori and even Melissa are remarkable characters that you fall in love with and root for to succeed. This is one exciting book that will keep you flipping pages to keep up with the story. You and your kids are going to enjoy this book. They will enjoy it even more if you read it with them (probably because they like you a lot). I am looking forward to the next book in this series with great interest.

    This review was written for #2: Silver Spurs.
    Wow!! I have to say I am very excited about Miralee Ferrell's new series for kids, Horses and Friends, after reading Silver Spurs, her second book. I have not read her first, so there is enough back story for the book to stand alone.

    Miralee has done a fantastic job of presenting young teens with the realistic problems they can face. I love her accurate portrayal of a family with an autistic child. Obviously, she is familiar with someone who deals with that on a daily basis. She also presents longings of a young teen's heart well, plus the hazards of negotiating a recent move and new friendships, competition, and a new school. What made me the most excited to see, though, was how Miralee wove faith in God into the story. This family made turning to God for help their first go-to, not their last. I am thrilled not only to recommend this book to the general public, but to pass it on to my own horse-loving niece.

    I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review, but I was not required to write a positive review.
