When Lisa Atwood goes to visit a friend of her mother's and her daughter, Marguerite, in a nearby town, Lisa doesn't expect to have a good time. Marguerite does ride, however, so when she suggests that she and Lisa go riding things start to look up. Marguerite's horse is gorgeous and she's very pleased with it. In fact, so pleased that she rides off and leaves Lisa on a strange trail. Lisa doesn't mind too much—her horse may be old, but she is sweet-natured and it's a nice day.
Then the mare stumbles and Lisa is thrown. She can't ride and she can't walk. She's alone with just the horse for company. The mare stays with Lisa, protecting the injured girl and keeping her warm and sheltered from the rain that begins to fall. Can the horse care for Lisa until help arrives?
About Bonnie Bryant
Welcome to the Saddle Club!
There are only two rules in this club: You’ve got to be horse crazy, and you’ve got to be willing to help your friends.
Sound good? All you have to do to join is turn the page and start reading.
You’re going to meet a lot of new people in the Saddle Club. Some of them you’re going to love, and some of them . . . well, maybe not so much.
The club has three main members: Stevie (short for Stephanie), Carole, and Lisa.
Carole is the horse craziest of them all. Sometimes it seems as if horses are the only things on her mind. Lisa is cool-headed and logical, a straight-A student with a great memory. Stevie, on the other hand, can be a little impetuous and often forgets to use common sense. When she sees people in trouble, she’ll do just about anything to help get them out of it—and that’s where the fun begins!
So saddle up—I mean, open the book, and share the girls’ adventures, troubles, and triumphs. Join them as they solve mysteries, make friends, and visit new places. Learn about Pine Hollow Stables. Meet Max, their teacher, and Mrs. Reg, Max’s mother. Get to know some of the other riders, like Phil and Veronica. Well, you might not want to get to know Veronica. You’ll have to see for yourself.
Most of all, have fun with your fellow Saddle Club members, who are sure to become your new best friends.
