Our Review

A Perfect Stride: (Loxwood#2) by Grace Wilkinson could be a stand alone book, BUT I would highly recommend you to read Loxwood (the first in this series) to completely understand the struggles that Georgia had to go through to obtain this magnificent horse. In this book, Georgia helps Loxwood adjust from the racing world of high speed, to the discipline of an under saddle event horse. The stress is mounting, as Georgia has her heart set on a high goal, which may or may not be within her reach. The training of finding the correct rhythm of the canter, the setting up for the jumps, became frustrating to this team, but Georgia finds strength and support from her beloved friend and trainer Rose as she still can't find peace at her own home.  During many months of training, Georgia expands her friendships with other equestrians and realizes
that her life might just not be as bad as she thought. Many surprises unfold with the secondary characters, and a revelation about Rose is quite the surprise. I felt this author wrote as though I myself was hanging out with the main character, feeling all her emotions, and nerves. I will say... what a surprise last chapter.
