January is the cruelest month, at least for the Saddle Club. The weather is miserable: cold, rainy, and muddy. No one can go riding outside, and everyone is sick and tired of being inside. The only things left to do are clean tack and ride in the indoor ring. The Saddle Club is bored--bored of riding and even of horses. So what can they do? Lisa decides to try her hand at needlepoint--can't get much further away from riding than that. Carole decides that this would be the perfect opportunity to write a great novel. And Stevie decides that a little time in the kitchen whipping up treats sounds like a great idea. Will these activities help them rediscover their love of horses? Or is the Saddle Club about to untack for good?
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.
