Born to Trot

Our rating: ***

Young Gibson White lives at a stable owned by his father, a trainer of trotting horses. Every morning he jogs his pony around the track. He should be happy, except that he never gets to drive in a race. Then Gibson gets his chance with a filly that his father gives him while Gibson is sick. But the filly hardly knows him. Will she go fast enough when Gibson drives, enough to win the Hambletonian, the greatest trotting race of all?

I didn’t like this book as much as the rest of Marguerite Henry’s books. It wasn’t as fast-paced. Though I went back to it recently and thought that it was pretty good.
