A trio of holiday stories for the horse lovers in the family: One Frosty Christmas, The Great Pumpkin Ride, and A Filly Called Easter.

One Frosty Christmas: A lonely handicapped girl...A neglected frostbitten mustang...A Metis boy, born of two worlds, but comfortable in none...A town without hope...And a pact of friendship that will change everyone’s lives forever. A heartwarming Hallmark-style of story about love, friendship, and belief in the power of Christmas.  

The Great Pumpkin Ride: A mysterious ring of stones in a clearing...An abandoned old trapper’s cabin in the woods...Flickering lights in the forest...The sound of hoof beats in the night...And a great pumpkin ride like no other. When a group of teens decide to camp out with their horses at a haunted cabin in the woods on Halloween night, they unravel a mystery and embark on the adventure of a lifetime. Join The Great Pumpkin Ride today. We dare you! This is a Disney-type of Halloween tale. It’s a glorious, fun-filled adventure for the whole family.

A Filly Called Easter: Linda gasped! All dreams of finding a new barrel-racing horse flew out the window. The golden palomino standing before her with soft brown eyes and a silver mane and tail was drop dead gorgeous...and much too young to be that pregnant. What was a filly like her doing at a slaughter house auction? Would her father let Linda take her home? Times were hard. Could they afford the vet bills for the filly and her unborn foal? There were bound to be many. Find the answer to these questions in this amazing Hallmark-style story about love at first sight and the girl who just wouldn’t give up on the filly called Easter. Inspired by a true story.

Great stories

This series of three stories involves a young girl and her horses. The stories are well written. I won't go into detail about the stories but listening to them in order makes the most sense. Of course, you could listen or read any one of the stories as they do stand alone. I would read books by this author in the future.

The narration is excellent. I would listen to books narrated by Leslie Howard again.
