The Saddle Club is spending February vacation with the Devines at the Bar None Ranch. Colonel Devine has just bought some new horses and one of the mares reminds Carole of Cobalt, the first horse she really loved. Carole rides the mare and discovers that, while the mare has been trained, there is still something wild in her.
Then the mare runs away. The Saddle Club finds her running with a herd of wild horses that lives on the Bar None land. They bring the mare back. She runs away again. They bring her back again, only to have her run away once more. Eventually, The Saddle Club and the Devines must face the fact that the mare wants to be in the wild--and that she belongs there. Carole's encounter with this free spirit teaches her something about herself, too. She has a very special talent--she's a natural horse whisperer.
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.
