These books are a great choice for any Christian girl. I have now read all eight books through three times I love them so much! I like how Dandi Dailey Mackall deals with tough issues. Winnie is "real" in this series--she deals with everyday problems with God's help. I learned a lot about horses from reading these books, and not just standard info--there's a lot of extremely helpful (but uncommon) horse infomation in them. There is also helpful info about fish, birds, dogs, and cats in here as well. These books have absolutely beautiful covers and chapter headings and a horse glossary in the back explaining horse behavior, tack, coat patterns, etc. You don't necessarily need to be a horse lover to enjoy this series, though. I also think that teenagers would enjoy this book too, even though they say it's for 8-12 year olds. Overall, a great series.

This is a great series with memorable and lovable characters, perfect for horse crazy girls or reluctant readers. Definitely one you'll read more than once. I would go with the older editions personally, because these new covers are much too juvenile looking for the depth of the story, in my opinion. (Don't judge a book by it's cover, as they say!) Highly recommended!!

This series is a Godsend! My 10 yr old daughter has all 8 books and loves them.It is so hard nowadays to find good christian reading.With my daughters love of horses and our christian faith this was a perfect match.I recently emailed the author to see if she had plans for any more books after # 8,so far she dosent,but she recommended the Horsefeather series and my daughter is currently reading those and enjoying them.She also has written a new series-Starlight Animal Rescue that is also wonderful.I never write reviews but feel I had too for these books! Enjoy!

My favorite series so far!!!!!!! Only, it focuses on some negative things; Winnie doesn't like her hair or her voice. Other than that, it's fine! I recommed this series to any girl who likes horses and loves GOD! JESUS DIED FOR YOU! WILL YOU LIVE HIS LIFE?
