Kidzworld reviews the books in The Saddle Club series. If you're a horse lover, you'll definitely want to check out these great novels for young girls.

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. If you want to become an honorary Saddle Club member and receive tons of great horse goodies, including two books, head to The Saddle Club official site.
