Book seven in the Morgan Horse series. The Further Adventures of Blackjack, takes the reader to the exciting world of Morgan Horse shows. Heather and Blackjack have had an awesome show season, winning top ribbons at all the New England Morgan shows. This could be the year that they get to go to Oklahoma to compete in the Grand National and World Championship Morgan Horse Show! But travel from New England to Oklahoma is quite expensive, especially with a 1,000 pound animal. In order to pay for the 1500 mile trip, Heather will have to make a very difficult decision, a decision that will involve one of her beloved horses. And there’s a lot that can happen on a four-day trip across the United States with 15 frisky horses cramped into a large horse van.
I just finished reading the book and must say that I found it to be an easy read and I really enjoyed it. I would also say that it is a perfect read for a middle school aged girl, (say in the 9-13 age group) especially if she is into horses. There is lots of excitement and suspense to be had by our young Heather and her Blackjack. If you have a teenage daughter at home or you love horses as much as I do. You will want to give this book a read. With a surprise ending in store I think you or she will really enjoy reading this one.
Note – I received this book in return for my early review. All opinions expressed are my own.
