Description of Leading the Way by Marsha Hubler
Skye, Chad, and Morgan look forward to another summer at Keystone Stables, teaching special-needs children how to ride and handle horses. Skye is especially excited to help Katie Thomas, a girl who went blind in a car accident four years ago. As Skye shares God’s love, Katie’s faith begins to grow, and she gets swept up in the world of horses. After bonding with one horse, a brown and white pinto named Boomerang, Katie soon learns to barrel race and with Skye’s help, deals with the threat of her parents’ divorce.

The pinto has won trophies, but the real champion is the blind girl who rides him.
Katie doesn’t like horses—or so she says, until she meets Keystone Stables’ champion barrel racer, Boomerang. Can a blind girl learn to ride a horse? With Skye’s help, the answer is yes!
It’s a summer of exciting discoveries for Katie. But Skye, too, is learning a lesson about patience as she shares the struggles of her new special-needs friend. Being blind isn’t easy, especially when Katie’s parents are separated. Her anger at them and at God can make Katie hard to be around.
Then Katie sets a very special goal for herself and Boomerang. Achieving it will take courage—but the prize could be greater than any blue ribbon.
