Stevie Lake is going on a class trip to New York City. While Stevie has visions of hanging out in Greenwich Village, her teacher has other ideas--long, boring lectures and a test. Well, Stevie has her own plans. She shakes her classmates and sets off to explore the Big Apple on her own. She ends up at the carousel in Central Park, where she meets not just people, but horses--including mounted policemen and riders from a nearby stable.
When Stevie's class wanders into the park, they don't have such a great adventure. In fact, they get lost. Now it's up to Stevie and her new friends to save the class and stop the school trip from turning into a disaster.
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.
