As she watched Alyssa canter her dainty Arab mare, Ariel, over a combination jump, Jane Ryan admitted to herself . But she did care, almost desperately, she thought now, both about having a horse of her own and being a part of a group.

As she watched Alyssa canter her dainty Arab mare, Ariel, over a combination jump, Jane Ryan admitted to herself that, as she’d been for so many years, she was still jealous. I’m so tired of being different, she whispered to Beau as she pulled off his bridle and he began rubbing his head vigorously on her arm. She turned, offering him her back, and he almost knocked her over with the force of his happy nuzzles.

A Horse of Her Own book. A Horse Of Her Own Annie Wedekind. Jane is very fortunate. Her family isn’t that wealthy but she manages to ride at Sunny Acres by helping around the farm and cleaning and helping other horses.

A Horse of Her Own - Annie Wedekind. Chapter 1. The Beginning of Summer. There was no doubt that Alyssa Taylor was an excellent rider

A Horse of Her Own - Annie Wedekind. There was no doubt that Alyssa Taylor was an excellent rider. Slim and poised, with a straight, relaxed back and lower legs like iron, she had a casual way of sitting on a horse like it belonged to her, as if she were favoring it with her seat and hands. This easy dominance was of a piece with the rest of her life-her tanned good looks and mature figure, her super-low-cut jeans with perfectly frayed cuffs, her expensive school, and her natural popularity.

Annie Wedekind grew up riding horses in Louisville, Kentucky. A Horse of Her Own was her first novel and was praised by Kirkus as "possibly the most honest horse book since National Velvet. Since then, she's been in the saddle in every place she's lived, from Rhode Island to New Orleans, South Africa to New York. She is also the author of The Breyer Horse Collection books, including Wild Blue, Little Prince, Samirah's Ride, and Mercury's Flight. She lives with her family in Brooklyn, New York.

And this is the summer she means to try out for the advanced riding class. But just as camp begins, Jane receives heartbreaking news about Beau.

Thank goodness for Annie Wedekind. A Horse Of Her Own This book is a great book. I bought it for my for my daughter; she loved it so I read it too. Katia. She has written an utterly charming novel that should be placed into the hands of horse-loving girls immediately upon publication.

A girl who longs for her own horse is given the chance to care for a troubled, damaged horse, who needs her as much as she needs him.

Fourteen-year-old Jane Ryan has always dreamed of having a horse of her own―but so long as she gets to ride her favorite school horse, Beau, at Sunny Acres farm, she's content. And this is the summer she means to try out for the advanced riding class.

But just as camp begins, Jane receives heartbreaking news about Beau. She loses, not just her favorite horse, but also her chance to ride in the end-of-summer competition. When her trainer asks for her help with an out-of-control chestnut warmblood, Lancelot, a newcomer to the barn, she has no choice but to say yes.

There's another new addition to the farm: Ben Reyes, the grandson of the barn's manager. As Jane struggles to go on without Beau, and to make Lancelot the great horse she believes him to be, her feelings for Ben, her relationships with the privileged group of girls she rides with, and her painful, joyous road to self-discovery all lead to a heart-pounding conclusion that is truly a new beginning. Only Jane's faith in Lancelot, and her own rediscovered skill and strength, can see her through the hard journey toward a horse of her own.

This is a classic in the making, I loved this book from start to finish. A great story line which the author followed. ***spoiler Alert*** I loved how the main character in this novel Jane, really was a horse lover like so many of us, loved the "ugly" horse, the crazy horse, and all the horses between. She was talented but not smug, and though she didn't have her own horse she worked so hard to be able to continue what she loved. I bet most of us horse girls know a kid or two like that and some of us were girls like that. Able to relate to characters and her discriptions really got you in the book. You took each fence with jane and wanted to smack emily a lot! My god daughter read it in a single night and has since had a lot of her friends want to borrow it or go out and get there own copy. This book rates right up there with National Velvet, Black Beauty, and my friend flicka! If you have a horse lover in your life, this is a book to give them. Great story of friendship, devotion, loyalty, and honestly, and strength. Jane is a real role model for kids, and i can't wait to try more of this authors books.

Our granddaughter would love a horse and she loved this book.

This was a gift, but both my wife and daughter love horses and they keep taking the book on each other to read it, so it is safe to assume they loved it. My daughter said it was her favorite book of all time.

Very good book for horse lovers

This book is amazing!! I loved every minute of it, and I never put it down! I would recommend this book for girls ages 10-14.
Very fun and relaxing read. While a teenager would enjoy this book since it had a lot of high school girl experiences, I still enjoyed it at 53 yo. If you've ever owned horses and were ever a teen (lol) you'll enjoy this book!
