The rodeo is about to arrive in town and all the cowboys want to impress the cowgirls with their riding skills.

Cowboy Marty lives on Seven Star Ranch and rides a bicycle to do his chores. He wants to impress the cowgirls too but there is just one problem: he is secretly scared of horses. To stop anybody finding out, he asks for help in the newspaper.

To his surprise, a skilled rider named Marjorie shows up on his ranch and is willing to teach him to ride. However, Marty has skills of his own. Can he teach her some valuable lessons in return?

Reviewed by Kristen Van Kampen for Readers' FavoriteThe Cowboy who was Scared of Horses by Michelle Path is a fun, well written children's book about a cowboy named Marty. Marty is scared of horses because he is worried that they will hurt him, and he figures he's perfectly fine on his bicycle. One day, Marty sees a poster saying that the rodeo is coming to town. Marty wants to enter, in hopes of impressing cowgirls, but he doesn't know how to ride a horse due to his fear. He places an ad in the newspaper, asking for help in learning how to ride a horse. A woman named Marjorie shows up, dressed in fancy clothes, and tells him that she's here to teach him how to ride a horse. She brings a small pony for Marty to ride. Will Marty be able to conquer his fear?I really enjoyed reading The Cowboy who was Scared of Horses by Michelle Path. The book is very well written and descriptive. The book has some funny parts, and many exciting scenes. The book has many likeable characters, like Marty who is able to face his fear, and Marjorie, who helps him face his fear. The illustrations are very well drawn and clearly depict each scene. The pictures are also very colourful and bold. Readers will be able to relate to Marty, because many people have feared something. Parents will enjoy reading this book to their child, and children will want to read it again and again. The book is very well developed and thought out. I would definitely recommend this book to all young readers. Michelle Path is an Australian children's author.

  • By Mark Schultz on September 19, 2016

    This newest offering from Michelle Path is a wonderful and heartwarming story for all but the youngest of children. Marty suffers from equinophobia, while not usually a problem, Marty lives on a ranch with horses. This is a well written story with beautiful full page illustrations. There are some great lessons for discussion, many teachable moments. The story is fun and light-hearted. We get to follow Marty as he seeks a solution for his problem.This is such a wonderful story, and I found no errors. The Cowboy Who Was Scared of Horses gets 5 stars! I congratulate Author Michelle, she is showing growth in her craft!
