Sonrise Stable Books

There’s something different at Sonrise Stable.

Yes, there are plenty of horses and horse-crazy girls—and a few too many cats!

The difference is the atmosphere!

Although set in modern times, the books have an old-fashioned feel. The main characters are homeschooled children who get along with their siblings, and respect their parents and other adults. They’re eager to learn about God and share their faith.

While the children are respectful and obedient, they’re not perfect. There’s plenty of adventure, humor, and opportunities for lessons to be learned. Wholesome and horsey, the Sonrise Stable series is unique among modern children’s fiction.

From the Author

vicki watson author Sonrise Stable books

Horses, homeschoolers, and God - some of my favorite things, not necessarily in that order of course!

I was fanatically crazy about horses from a very young age. My love for God came later. I can't explain the fascination I had for horses from as far back as I can remember. I think God planted it in me.

I longed for a horse so badly it was almost a physical pain. I read every horse book in our small town's library. The horse books were grouped together, and I made a beeline for that shelf on each visit. I remember dreams in which I had my own horse - and the disappointment of waking up to find it had been only a dream.

In God's timing, I was able to have horses of my own. They have brought me much pleasure, and God has used them to teach me things that extend far beyond the world of horses. 

My goal in the Sonrise Stable series is not only to teach children about horses, but also to help them draw closer to God. Although the target audience is children eight to thirteen, many adult women have enjoyed the books as well.
