About this item


Book Synopsis

This is a story about inspiration. ItÔøΩs a story about family, faith, perseverance, and tenacity. This story is about a girl and her pony, and the sport of endurance riding, but mostly itÔøΩs about overcoming challenges, and opening ourselves up to failure in the hope that we will grow, learn, and eventually succeed. ItÔøΩs about the human spirit, the Holy Spirit, the fire-in-the-soul kind of spirit that helps us climb mountains and cross rivers, literally and figuratively. This is about the journey we must all take in life; one of highs and lows, successes, and failures - this one just happens to be along a hundred-mile historic trail in the Sierra Nevada mountains, the setting for the most famous endurance race in the world. This is a story about Kyla Law and her small-but -mighty Hackney pony, Flash, and how for one amazing day, in a world dragged down by a worldwide pandemic, they inspired an international community as Flash became the smallest horse to ever finish the Western States One-Hundred-Mile, One-Day Ride ÔøΩ The Tevis Cup.

I have had the pleasure of reading previous books written by the talented Claire Eckard. It was great to have the opportunity to get my hands on her newest release, Race Against Time: A Girl, a Pony & the Toughest 100 Mile Race in the World. I thought it was a wonderful book to read. It was full of adventure that made me captivated with Flash and Kyla’s tale. I adored their friendship and trust between the two. It was beautiful to see how human and pony were able to such a perfect team and good role models. The plot is full of inspiration that would be a wonderful influence on the younger readers. I was honored to take this journey along each page. I had no problem reading the whole book in one sitting. It was time well spent on a cool and rainy day. I am giving Race Against Time: A Girl, a Pony & the Toughest 100 Mile Race in the World five stars. Readers, fans and lovers of horses and equestrian sports, between the ages of nine and fourteen years old, will definitely not want to miss out on reading this one. Once again, I will be looking for more by Claire Eckard in the future. I received a paperback copy of Race Against Time: A Girl, a Pony & the Toughest 100 Mile Race in the World from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
