While she was there she met a lady named Mrs. Longhurst who also had to sell her horse. While Ambrose was there she also had to get a new pack horse her and Mrs. Longhurst got to talking and it turns out her horse is 25 years old but still strong and healthy.
I would recommend this book to people who like reading about action and adventure. And also people who enjoy horses.
The author wrote this book to say that everyone should have a chance to live there life. My favorite character is Ambrose because she never gave up on anything like with Blackie or Society Girl. My least favorite character would be Ryan because he always treated people badly. The part of the book that captivated my attention was when Mrs. Longhurst had to give up her horse because she had to go to a retirement home. And she talked to Ambrose just new that Society Girl was the horse to buy. The emotions I felt were sad and joy.
It was like a narrow playground slide. This book relates to me because I have also lost a beloved friend to. It is hard but you have to get over it.
