Author: Bonnie Bryant

What could be better than riding horses all the time? How about riding horses with your BFFs? Carole Hanson, Stevie Lake and Lisa Atwood are The Saddle Club - an exclusive group of girls who aren't just best buds, they're the ultimate horse-lovers! Get the scoop on the first four books in this page-turning series.

Horse Lovers Unite!

With more than 100 Saddle Club books, horse-lovers are never at a loss for something to read with this series. The first four books in the series outline how the Saddle Club was formed by Carole, Stevie and Lisa. The girls all ride at Pine Hollow Stables in their hometown of Willow Creek, Virginia. Each has their own unique personality, but one important thing draws them together - their obsessive love of horses. You can't just like horses to be a part of The Saddle Club, you have to LOVE them!

Galloping Adventures

Each Saddle Club book makes for a quick, fun read. There is a new adventure, and a new problem to solve, in each addition. Not only do they learn new things about horses, they also have to face the trials and tribulations of friendship and life as a middle-schooler. Book one finds the girls banding together to help Stevie with her math project so she won't miss out on The Mountain Trail Overnight ride. Book two has the girls pulling together to remind Carole why she loves horseback riding so much after an accident shakes her confidence. Book three finds the Saddle Club's members needing a reality check about how much they want to be in the club and book four sees Carole, Stevie and Lisa looking to recruit a new member to their club.


The Bottom Line

The Saddle Club books made their debut way back in 1986 and have been a fixture in horse-lovers' lives ever since. The first four books in the series is a great place to get started[/KWLINK] - they are guaranteed to win over anyone with a passion for horses and riding. In 2001, the book series was also adapted into a TV show that can be seen on The Discovery Channel several times a day.

    "I'm sorry!" He screamed. He could apologize all he wanted. It still didn't change the hurt in my heart. I couldn't even look at him. My face was blank but my emotions were still there. It was all there. I think he knew.  "Kathryn look at me. Kathryn!" He shook me like i was a dead body. "Stop it! Stop it! That hurts!" The tears finally came slowly. His expression changed from anger to realization of how much he really hurt me. "Kathryn. Please...what are you thinking." I pause. What was i thinking? Was i thinking that he betrayed me? After all i sacrificed he lied?  "I'm thinking your father was right. I should have never trust you." He blinked. "What..." It must have hurt. What i said. Him and his father haven't spoken for years. He begged for approval from him. It all seemed so sad now. I didn't want to deal with this. I felt tired, but i always felt tired. But this was different. The kind of tired that drags at your body, your lungs, your every movement. I had to sit down. I took my oxygen mask and breathed in from it. "Drake..." I whispered. He dropped on his knees and looked at me. "Remember that time. When i...i gave you all my power, just to give you your life back." I remembered that day. My bod was flame. I am flame. It is my power. I man had been trying to kill me ever since i was a little kid. I thought he killed my parents, but i finally found out who really did it, me. I blew up. Exploded. Fire everywhere. I was only five. The man had come while me and Drake were talking. He put something in me. Poison? Drake had panicked, but then he gave me all his power. He had dark, dark, power. In fact, we were destined to be against each other. No one expected us to fall in love. I gave it all back to him and he turned fine. "I'm surprised you remember. Yea, i do." I looked at him sadly and put my forehead against his "I'm gonna die Drake. It's because what i gave to you. Your life. A life for a life." He froze, shocked. Tears fell from my eyes and they were filled with fire. "And my last memory will be of you cheating on me!" I stood not even realizing that was a bad move. I fell but Drake caught me. He cried. Hard. I looked at him and said "Sorry's just a word Drake. So is love. But it depends on who's saying it. And if it's real. For you. It wasn't. Not for anybody. But i will say it anyway. I hate you Drake. But i love you too."
