    1. I received this from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.A Star Is Born is a quick, enjoyable read that is written for young adults, but will be enjoyed by anyone who likes horses.Stardust Stables is a training facility for teenage stunt riders and horses to be used in the entertainment industry. Stunt riding requires perseverance, patience, hours of training and skill. Kami was recruited for her horse riding accomplishments, but is she up to the task? She is the new girl and is required [...]


    2. The first of a new series focusing on a group of teenaged equestrians that are learning their craft in a stable that provides horses and riders for the film industry. Sable Hamilton managed to keep the horse and horse-related elements honest and accurate while still providing readers with a story that is engaging and entertaining. Kammi is a well-regarded rider, and has been invited to join the team at Stardust Stables for a 6 week working student program. She’ll learn the ins and outs of tric [...]


    3. This is written by Jenny Oldfield under a pen name. She has written many young adult horse stories in the past such as the Horses of Half-Moon Ranch, and Mustangs series, so I have to take it that she has switched publisher and is tied to the first publisher by a contract that stops her using her name or series for a new firm. Authors, read your contracts carefully, or better yet, publish independently. A keen rodeo competitor has been chosen to train as a stunt rider by a firm which supplies th [...]


    4. Thirteen year old Kami Cooper is staying at Stardust Stables for six weeks this summer. She was invited to do so by Lizzie Jones, one of the owners, who had spotted her winning a barrel racing contest. She’s going there to learn how to do stunt riding and is initially in awe of the riders there and their abilities. As she starts to makes new friends, learns how to do stunts (sometimes falling off and ‘eating dirt’ as she does so), Kami also has to overcome feelings of homesickness. With au [...]


    5. 3.5/5. If you're looking for a fun, exciting horsey read, you'll certainly get that here. Kami is 13 and spending her summer learning to be a stunt rider, and trying to get a part in a big upcoming film. The story is quick, fun and enjoyable, and any horse mad girl from 8 upwards will no doubt love this story.For me, in my late 20's and still totally horse mad, it was frustrating at times. Like the ridiculousness of teaching stunts like standing on a horses back at canter, rather than halt as wo [...]


    6. It was interesting to read about the different horses in Stardust Stables and that each horse was better at different stunts than others. For example, some were better at working near fire and explosions, while others specialized in playing dead or with water stunts. I learned some horse tips here and there and found out that there are special equine aircrafts with stalls in them and everything. It was a fun and easy read. A Star is Born by Sable Hamilton is a sweet book. Any young girl with an [...]


    7. Kami is the newest rider at the Stardust Stables, a learning ranch for stunt riders. She is in love with her horse, Magic, and is eager to prove herself, though terrified she'll fall on her face in the attempt. When she lands a big stunt role in a movie, it seems like everything is going to be OK. Now if only she could figure out her relationship dramaThis was a cute book for any girl who loves horses. Recommended for ages 8-12.


    8. I'm a sucker for horse books. And I'm a sucker for good stories. My guilty pleasure.This is one. I enjoyed this so much that I had a great big grin on my face when the book ended. I wish I could do any of the stunts these riders do, it sounds like so much fun! Throw in some movie sets, teen crushes and egos and you got a great mix for a couple hours well spent reading this book.


    9. Kami is going to spend her summer working at a horse ranch learning how to become a stunt girl. In addition to learning stunts she has lots of chores to do around the ranch. Making friends is easy but the drama starts once Hollywood comes looking for a stunt girl. If you enjoy this book you will also enjoy the others in the Stardust Stables series.


    10. Good book! I give it 3 stars because the book has a kind of boring story line. I like the trick riding in it. I did not like how the mean girl turns nice in the end. The mean girl was making the book better. Not a book I will buy.


    11. If you're a horse passionate You'll love this book! I enjoyed reading this short novel even though there's just few pages. Any age can read this book. It's amazing!


    12. Great new horse lovers series. We have brought all 4 books for our school library (i just borrowed them first lol)
