Girls love horses! Horsewoman Rebecca Ondov invites tweens (ages 8 to 12) to experience life around horses—caring for them, getting to know their personalities, training them, and loving them. Along the way, girls will discover more about themselves—who they are, how much God loves them, and what He wants them to do.
Using their love for horses as a base, Great Horse Stories for Girls helps girls:
- build confidence in God’s love and provision
- create stronger friendships
- know how to handle “the blues”
- make wise choices
- develop an active prayer life
Daughters will enjoy these true stories of interacting with horses and encounter life-changing truths that will help them grow strong spiritually, emotionally, and mentally.
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.
