While learning to ride at Sonrise Stable, eight-year-old Rosie dreams of the horse shows she will win with her pony, Jet. Two years later, nothing is exactly the way Rosie planned it-she's riding a new pony, Scamper, and learning that life isn't always easy. But it's as Rosie reaches out to the new girl next door that she truly begins to see that God works all things together for good in our lives. Rosie and Scamper is the first book in the Sonrise Stable series, heartwarming stories of an extended homeschooling family as they live, learn, and love together. Mixing adventure, life lessons, and realistic horse experiences, the series is a must for readers who enjoy family values, Christian faith, and, of course, horses!

About the Author:

My love of horses began when a teenage neighbor offered me my first ride, on the back of her horse. From my 8-year-old perspective, it seemed like the biggest horse in the world. From that moment on, I was hooked. Horses were to become a very important part of my life, although I never could have imagined, at the time, how much God would teach me about Himself and my relationship to Him through these wonderful animals.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Grandma could see tears coming to Rosie’s eyes. “I used to have a problem with letting other people talk me into doing things when I was your age.”

“Really?” Rosie sat down beside her grandmother.

“Let’s see, I must have been about nine or ten. Candy was my neighbor and best friend. She and I always had a great time riding our ponies, Frosty and Dolly, together. One summer afternoon, Candy and Frosty came over. We were standing by our front door talking, when all of a sudden I saw a sparkle in Candy’s eye and a big grin on her face.

“She looked at the front door of our house, and then back at me. ‘I bet Frosty would go into your house.’ Well, I didn’t doubt that. Frosty was the kind of pony you could do anything with. We often had three of us kids riding him at once. When he got tired, he would head for the closest tree, and we’d all jump off before he knocked us off on the branches.

“I shook my head at Candy. ‘I don’t think that’s a good idea.’ I was sure my mom was inside and even more certain that she would not appreciate a pony in her house. ‘I guess you’re scared to try it, aren’t you?’ Candy challenged.

“‘Scared? Me? Hand me those reins.’

“Candy smiled and turned over Frosty’s reins. She opened the door, and I steered the chubby little pony through.

“We turned left, traveled through the kitchen and into the dining room. Another left turn brought us into the living room. Frosty seemed to feel right at home. I glanced over to the other end of the room where my mom was relaxing in a recliner, absorbed in a book. Maybe it was the sound of Frosty’s hooves clip-clopping on the hardwood floor, or Candy and I giggling, but something got my mother’s attention. She looked up from her book and jumped straight up in the air. I was alarmed by the look on her face. When she regained her speech, she yelled, ‘Viiicki, get that pony out of here—NOW!’”

Grandma laughed. “We made it out a lot faster than we went in. It’s a good thing Frosty had not used the bathroom during his visit. I’m sure my mother would not have been so understanding then.”

Rosie wiped away her tears with the back of her hand and started to laugh. “You didn’t really do that, did you, Grandma?”

“Yes, Rosie, I did. It’s a funny story, but it shows how easily I was persuaded to do something I shouldn’t have. I was more concerned about what my friend thought of me, than about doing what was right. Throughout your life you’ll have people trying to get you to do wrong things. You need to be strong enough to resist that pressure. The Bible says ‘Bad company corrupts good character.’ You need to be careful who you choose to be your friends and what kind of influence you allow them to have on you.”

“Do you think I shouldn’t be friends with Carrie?”

Grandma pursed her lips thoughtfully. “They moved next door a few weeks ago, so I don’t know much about her yet. I’ll invite Carrie over to ride so we can get to know her better. We can both try to be a good influence on her.” Grandma got up and checked the latch on Scamper’s stall door.

“I hope you learned something today. Sometimes people do things because of peer pressure that have effects that last a lifetime. What if Kezzie had jumped and you had fallen off? You could have been seriously injured.”

Shoulders drooping, Rosie followed her grandmother out of the barn. “I guess I’ll have a lot of time to think about it. I don’t know how I’ll be able to stand two weeks without seeing Scamper and Kezzie. Couldn’t you just spank me, Grandma?”

Grandma looked at her and grinned. “No, I think it will be better to give you some time to think things over. Scamper won’t change much in two weeks, and then you can come back and help me with him again.”
