Another Kind of Cowboy by Susan Juby

16 Oct

Alex is a guy who loves dressage but makes do with what his father wants him to be-a “real” cowboy. Cleo is a rich brat who falls into dressage because her parents are tired of her games and send her to horsey boarding school. The unlikely pair form an unusual friendship as each of them come to terms with who they are and who they are meant to be.

What I liked about this story is despite the story line, it wasn’t as predictable as I was expecting. The characters are pretty well drawn  and the pacing is more moderate as the author takes time to develop the story. The setting could be anywhere you have a boarding school, horses and teenagers. The frame of the world of horses is integral to understanding the power and beauty of horses and the different breed of folks that ride them. 2007, 341 pages.
