Book Description

Twelve-year-old Winnie Willis has a way with horses. She can gentle the wildest mare, but other parts of her life don't always come as easily. Along with her dad and sister, Lizzy, Winnie is learning how to live without her mom, who was also a natural horse gentler. As Winnie teaches her horses about unconditional love and blind trust, God shows Winnie that he can be trusted too. Readers will be hooked on the series' vivid characters, whose quirky personalities fill Winnie's life with friendship and adventure. In #2 Eager Star, Winnie learns something about people as well as horses when she begins to value the power of praise and encouragement.

5.0 out of 5 stars incredible books 23 Sept. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I think this book was good because it had a touch of real life in it for instance using things like spurs and often scolding horses is not the way to go or though others may think different but I myself have tried both ways and horsemanship works wonders just as Winnie had showed you can use some of the techniques that Winnie used on ur own horse or somebody else's

5.0 out of 5 stars EAGER STAR...ANOTHER WINNER FOR WINNIE 24 May 2002
By mary elizabeth anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Winnie tries to adjust to her 7th grade year in a new school. She wonders why her sister Lizzie always finds it so easy to make friends, when she would rather talk to horses than people. Winnie thinks the only way she can fit in at school is to train a horse for Grant Baines, the most popular boy in school. But she only has one week in which to do this. Will she have enough time? Readers will find that once they start this book, they won't be able to set it down. And when they do finish EAGER STAR, they'll know they need to read the whole series!

4.0 out of 5 stars Book Two : Eager Star 14 Aug. 2011
By J. Short - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is book two in the "Winnie the Horse Gentler" series. It is aimed at girls ages 8-12 and about a junior high girl who can make impossible horses into good ones. Her mother has died, and she learned how to do this from her mother.

In this book, it's the start of the school year and her classmate, Grant, is to be riding in a barrell race. However, his horse "Eager Star" doesn't want to cooperate. She even bucks Grant off of her at one point in the book. Winnie's job is to make this horse that is frightened and nervous into a winner in one week.

Also during the course of the book Winnie gets off on the wrong foot with her English teacher, and wouldn't you know it, but she turns in the WRONG journal this woman, which doesn't make things any better for Winnie.

She also plans a slumber party, inviting the most popular girls in school. That doesn't go quite as expected for her.

This was an enjoyable book even though I'm not the target age range. It is a quick read, and one that girls who love horses would be especially fond of. I am looking forward to reading the rest of this series.

I am buying this series for my granddaughters after reading them all myself on Kindle. It is good to find books which are so good and so relevant to this age group and are not about witches, wizards, monsters and vampires.
