Rosie and Scamper

Rosie and Scamper, written by Vicki Watson, is the first in the author’s Sonshine Stables series. The stable is so-named because its owner, Kezzie, uses horses to not only teach children how to ride but to also teach life lessons with Christian values.

Rosie is Kezzie’s granddaughter. She visits her grandmother as often as she can so she can help out in the stable and ride her horse, Jet. Jet is going to have a foal and Rosie can’t wait for that to happen. Grandma Kezzie is going to help Rosie train the foal when it is born.

In addition to learning more about horses, Rosie learns some tough lessons about life that change the course of her life forever. But she also learns that God guides us along as we go through life’s journey.

The author includes a short section at the back of the book about “Horse Safety”. She has also added an interview with Terry Meijers, a nationally recognized horse trainer and riding instructor, as well as a blurb about Susan Newquist who designs jewelry made with horse hair.
