Keystone Stables Book 5

Leading the Way

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.
