"Horse Show Hurdles" is a worthy continuation of Joan Houston's first book, "Jump-shy". It's summer again, so Cynnie and Tam are back in Vermont visiting with their uncle. The Leroy stables has become the popular place to be, so after a dispute with the owner of the Wilby Stables, Uncle Peter moves his nieces' horses to Leroy's. Cynnie is thrilled due to her friends already being there, but Tam's loyalties are to Frank Wilby and his stable hand, Steven. The climax comes at the annual horse show, when Tam "grabs the reins" of a serious problem in an effort to protect her "big" sister.

I enjoyed this sequel almost as much as the previous book. All the characters are back, although the younger sister, Tam, is showing more maturity than her sibling, who can't say "no", no matter what the cost. The people are real, as are the situations, and the result was a very enjoyable read. I'll be looking for a copy of this book to add to my library for a future reread. ( )
