This series by Dandi Daley Mackall is about a girl who has lost her mother and wants to become a famous horse gentler.

Wild Thing (from Amazon):

Twelve-year-old Winnie Willis has a way with horses. She can gentle the wildest mare, but other parts of her life don't always come as easily. Along with her dad and sister, Lizzy, Winnie is learning how to live without her mom, who was also a natural horse gentler. As Winnie teaches her horses about unconditional love and blind trust, God shows Winnie that he can be trusted too. Readers will be hooked on the series' vivid characters, whose quirky personalities fill Winnie's life with friendship and adventure.

In #1 Wild Thing, Winnie's fearful heart finally begins to trust God again as she tries to gentle the horse of her dreams, Wild Thing.

From the Back Cover

I have to have that horse. And I'll do whatever it takes to get her. Twelve-year-old Winnie Willis loves horses just like her mother did. But since her mom died two years ago, Winnie, her sister, Lizzy, and her father have moved five times. Winnie never cared much until now. She has a chance to buy the horse of her dreams at an upcoming auction but how will she ever earn enough money? More importantly, how can she possibly convince her dad not to move them to another town... again?

Loving every word
by: #1 Horse Lover💗

Dear Dandi Daley Mackall,

I am loving everything in your books. I learn a lot from the books religiously and about the animals. I love every horse and dream I had a farm with horses, chickens, dogs, etc. I love the names you have given all the animals. I also love all the jokes Bart tells Winnie and Lizzy's kindness. The hardest thing about the books is that I try to pace myself but it never works.


Sincerely,
#1 Horse Lover💗

My horse won't go faster than a walk. I was hoping to show her in the fair, but I won't do very well, because it is supposed to be a walk-trot.

Please help me!

Winnie help!
by: Hawk

Hi, I love these horse books! They are the best! They bring out the truth of my life at the right moments I reread them so many times! I have been trying to figure out what I want to do when I'm older for a hobby! HORSE GENTLING, I have had experience too. But I still need help. I am trying to buy a horse but do not know what would be smarter, lease a troubled horse for free I saw, or take home a rescue for free and train 🐴

We are moving and when we do I will be bringing my horse, the pastor of our church has 8 horses and said we could bring one of his ponies. She's a Shetland and super cute, but the problem is me and my family cannot ride her, and I need some tips on how to give her exercise without her being ridden. So could you please help.

Dear Lost in the yard,
What I would get is an American Quarter horse, or an Arabian gelding. Arabian geldings are a lot calmer than mares and stallions. A gelding would be best if you are a beginner rider.

Horse tips
by: MustangM

Bean. Awww! I love that name! He sounds like a cutie. If he is bucking and you want to do the same thing I told horsecrazybarrelracer in my previous post. Once you get them to stop bucking, make them turn in small, tight circles, back them up, etc. Anything you can do to get their attention and make them work. Pretty soon, they'll find out you'll make them work a lot harder when they buck, than if they had just done what you ask in the first place.

Also, you may want to check your horse's teeth. A lot of older horses have teeth problems. By the time your horse is 10 or more, there is often a lot of wear and tear put on the teeth, resulting in some pretty sharp edges. When those sharp teeth rub against your horse's jaw from the inside, it is very uncomfortable for them. If your horse is an older horse, I would definitely recommend a vet checking their teeth. If they are indeed sharp, a simple procedure called "floating" should get the job done. When a vet floats your horse's teeth, they take a file and file the sharp edges of your horse's teeth down to a more even, soft place. This doesn't hurt your horse at all, but sometimes vets will give your horse a bit of sedative to relax them, because it can be scary for your horse.

I had a quarter horse mare who was amazing, but then all of a sudden she began to buck and throw fits whenever I pulled on the bit. We knew something was up, because she had never bucked before ever. Her weight was also decreasing, so we had her teeth checked, and it's a good thing too! Her molars had been worn to very sharp points, almost as if she had fangs! This was obviously extremely uncomfortable, so we had her teeth done. Immediately, we noticed a difference in behavior.

Horse tips
by: Mustang Mel

Hey guys! I know I'm not Winnie, but I think I can help y'all out. I have read those books too, and a long time ago, I tried to get to the website too, but couldn't find it. So, I will try to be "the new Winnie" and help y'all out! I have had a lot of horse training experience, and have even trained a couple mustangs from Wild, as well as several Quarter Horses. If anybody has a question, let me know and I'll do my best to help you.

Horse crazy Barrel racer

I used to have a buckskin horse that did the same thing! If your horse bucks you off during a barrel run, that is really bad. This is your horse saying "I don't respect you at all". I would try trotting the barrels, slowly, for the next few days. Then work up to a slow lope/canter. If your horse pitches with you, hang on. Don't grab the horn, it will throw you off balance- if you have to, use it to push yourself back in the saddle, don't latch onto it or you'll come off for sure.

Ideally, you want to correct it as soon as it happens. When she throws that first buck in there, be ready and pull back sharply on the reins. Then take one rein and grab onto it as close to their mouth as you can and pull their head around one direction until their nose touches your knee on that side. Moat horses can't run or buck with their head pulled around like that, so it is a good way to stop them. Once you get her stopped, back her up. A lot. Backing is a good benign punishment for horses because it is a form of submission for them, and they really don't like doing it. Do this every time she bucks. Hope this helps! Every horse is different though, so let me know if it doesn't and we can try something different!

Nightmare

Is your horse just not going forwards? Or is he not listening at all? I would suggest getting a small riding crop and tapping the horse's shoulder firmly a lot, while encouraging him forwards at the same time. I'm sure he is being stubborn. A lot of horses like to test their rider's skills and experience like that. Ask your riding instructor for some tips and ask about the horse's normal personality. If he is always stubborn, you may want to use spurs. My Mustang Hooty is a lot like this, so I usually wear some small knobby spurs with her- nothing too harsh, just a little extra encouragement!

So I had this one trainer that was very very cautious. She's so cautious she's afraid to let you do some stuff but she's super nice and has taught me a lot. But then I moved to this other tainer that's real rude and will yell at you but she's not so cautious and will let me have more freedom then my other trainer. I also think I have more fun with the first trainer but the second trainer can get me into competitions and the first trainer can't. I don't know who to go to... help!

Hi

Hi Winnie! I recently got a horse and I love him but he still needs some training. My instructor is an old west kinda horse person, you know self-inflicted pain kinda stuff. Well she’s nice but I prefer natural horsemanship. Next time she punishes my horse (okay, so what she does is she shows me how I "should" punish him). What should I do? Should I stop her?

Help me!

P.S. my horse has never used a bit and before I got him he used a quick stop, but now I ride him with ether a halter or a bit less bridle.
Thanks!!🐎

Adoption mayhem
by: epic the merp derp

So we (my family and me) are planning on moving in maybe a few months. We own 4 Halflingers (two mares, two geldings). I own one of them, her name is Laura B but we call her Mack cause she is a giant for a halflinger. I can't ride her though, she's 31+ years which is why I love her breed. She still has a lot of life left though.

I would love to adopt a gelding that I can ride. And after some searching, I have found a good horse rescue in Idaho with some good geldings and mares for adopting. There is a 9-year old gelding available, only problem is that there isn't any description for many of the horses so I don't know what his personality is like and I don't know if he is ride-able.

I'm not asking you guys if he is a good horse, all I'm asking is if you have any adoption tips?

THANK YOU, WINNIE!
by: Horse Charmer

Dear Winnie,

I have just finished reading all the books in your series in a period of about two months. They are all so good and have a lot of helpful information in them.

My family owns two horses: Dream and Baylie. We got Dream first, and when Baylie came along, Dream became the boss mare and ultimately began to try and boss me around. I could not think of anything to do to help show Dream I was in charge until I read your books.

Then, using your techniques I began working Dream, playing with her, not letting her get away with anything, and just spending a lot of time with her. I could not push her too hard because just a few weeks after we got her, she was injured and became lame on her left foreleg. Even the little I have done with her, Dream is now a much better horse.

Thank you! You helped so much! Recently, we were helping someone on their ranch and when they asked us to put fly repellent on some of the horses, they then said it was okay not to get them all because some of them were skittish.

My sister and I were able to fly spray all the horses and mules except for one. Later the woman called my sister and I "horse charmers" and "miracle workers." I am on my way to horse gentling. Yeah! Thank you, Winnie!

Godspeed,
Horse Charmer

To HORSE LOVER
by: Slorider

I totally agree with MKrider. But really the absolute best thing to feed your horse is hay and let your horse graze. A horse's digestive system is designed to graze a lot and so it doesn't need much more. But I would recommend feeding hay too.

I would avoid grains and oats if possible because a horse is MUCH more prone to colic when it has been eating a lot of grain. But if your horse needs extra supplements and a vet has said so then feed your horse some grain or vitamins or whatever is required along side of grass and hay.

Hope this is helpful :-)

what to feed a horse
by: MKrider

-fresh water
-hay or grass of 1-2% of their body weight
-oats and other grains (make sure you're feeding your horse the right amount)
-some horses need supplements so it's good to figure out if your horse needs any additional vitamins or things like that

Dear New Horses
by: MKrider

I'm not Winnie but I do have some advice.

I once lived beside someone who had a horse and I then visited it everyday at the same time (once my parents were gone and we weren't allowed out of the house.) I saw the horse prancing near the fence at the same place where I go to see him.

All you have to do is visit your horse regularly and spend about 20 min with your horse (or more).

Neighboring Horses
by: DesprateForHorses

I love your books, Dandi! Tell Nickers, Starlight, Cleopatra, Blackfire, and every horse of yours that I said hi, I'm a big fan!

I am hearing all these depressing stories about girls and their horses, (or want horses). For all girls out there that want a horse, I'm one of you! I've dreamed of owning a horse forever. Sometimes, I have this amazing dream of a horse that I own. It seems only fitting to call these dreams magical.

I love your books, and it inspires me a lot!

Horse Crazy
by: Horseless

Winnie,

I love horses. My room is full of them but I don't own a horse, and I catch myself daydreaming a lot about owning one. I just scroll through the web looking for horses that are for sale, my grandma loves that I love horses but if the horse is only $100-$300 she says it probably is a bad horse. Is she right?

Great Books
by: Devyn

I have read TONS of horse fiction and this series is by far the best I have ever read!

The main character is likable but not perfect, which is great, and the other characters are so unique. It's also more realistic then most horse books. (The girl and horse don't form an immediate bond, Winnie earns it through hard work and dedication.) And at the end they don't go on to win a huge show.(That happens at the end of a lot of horse books and that could send the message that horses are only for winning ribbons.)

Thanks for reading my review!

Note from Sydney at HorseCrazyGirls.com

Milana - I am not sure you realize but this is not Winnie's site so I don't think she will see your question. My trainer's horse has the same problem though! Sometimes owners will use grazing muzzles to cut down on the food they eat, but be sure to check with your vet.

Pressure
by: anonymous

My mare has a problem. This has been going on for about a week. Every time I ride my horse and squeeze her sides to speed up, she bucks and kicks and freaks out. This has never happened before. She loves going fast and has never had a problem with pressure until now. We had the vet come and check out her stomach. She said that it is probably joints or maybe even painful ulcers! So, I can't go fast while riding any more. Are their any exercises that can help with this? Thanks!

Dear Winnie,
Me and my horse, Zipto would like to thank you for all of your tips. I love to ride bareback too!
I don't get to ride as often as I'd like but when I do I always try to think what Winnie would do. I love these series, I love that they were written and I love horses (I really love Zipto!)!
I have one tiny little problem I was bucked off really hard (by a different horse) and I'm still kinda scared when I ride. I know that Zipto would never do it to me, but I'm still a bit anxious when she moves without command. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

money!
by: parents

Dear Winnie,

My mom wont let me get a horse unless i get enough money for it. How do i earn fast money???

Reply from Sydney at HorseCrazyGirls.com

Owning a horse can be very expensive I know. And it's really, really hard when you don't have the money to pay for one. I got Sinatra when I was 14 and I felt like I waited forever!

Are you old enough to get a job at a barn, even if it's just cleaning out stalls, grooming or whatever the barn needs? That may be one way to at least get some money for riding lessons. You could also ask your mom whether you could do a half lease on someone else's horse to get a feel for what owning one is like.

I'd love to hear ideas from other girls how they were able to afford their horses.

I Have Two Problems With My Horse
by: Hannah

Hello, Winnie, my name is Hannah and I have two problems with my Appaloosa, Comet. The first one is that, when I lunge him he won't go clockwise. He'll go counter clockwise easily but when I try to go the other way he turns around. I've tried having someone run beside and go that way but he won't do it by himself. The second problem is that it usually takes me about an hour to catch him. Over the years, he has gotten harder and harder to catch. Food doesn't work anymore and he won't let me round him up to the barn. I want to try just going out there several times a day and catching him and then letting him go but it takes to much time and I can only see him on the weekends. Help me please!

I sometimes have to push his head away, for fear that he might try to bite me. Is he just nuzzling or trying to bite? Help! Your books are some of my favorite book series! :)

Hi,

I have a great beautiful coffin bay. I try so hard to communicate with her but she shuts me out. It is strange because I have always been giving her treats. I don't ride her much because of the mountain load of homework I have to do. But I give her lot's of love and hugs. I blow into her nose to tell her I love her but it won't work:(please help me.

by: Keely

Winnie the Horse Gentler, is one of the better christian horse series that I've read. Nice plot line, and repetitive characters throughout the series, but each book could be read as a stand alone. If you're looking for a quick read, I would recommend one of the books from this series.

by: Zion

Well, it's a series and I think my favorite is the first "Wild Thing" It's an awesome book! It's about this 12 year old girl named Winnie Willis who works at this stable for The Spidells who are the worst! And she is the only one who can get this white arabian to listen. But the Spidells keep hurting the horse. And it breaks Winnie's heart so she decides to do something about it.

great horse book series
by: Anonymous

I love this series!!! It's by Dandi Daley Mackall, author of Horsefeathers. It's a christian book series that's taught me a lot. In the ending of the first one I began to cry. But back then I was 9. There are a total of eight books in this series, each one with a problem horse. The first one is how she gets her horse. In the end I began to cry because her and hr dad don't really have a relationship, her mom died two years ago.

THIS IS A HAVE-TO-READ HORSE BOOK SERIES!!! I LLOOOOVVVEEE IT!!!!!!!!!!!
