12-year-olds Carole Hanson and Stevie Lake have been the best of friends ever since they met at Pine Hollow Stables where they and other girls take riding classes. Carole Hanson is a girl who had been raised in the Marine Corps and she just loves horses! Stevie Lake comes from a wealthy family but is not in the least spoiled. She just loves practical jokes and of course, she loves horses too! So when snobby-looking, straight-A student, Lisa Atwood comes to Pine Hollow in fancy riding gear, they aren't really sure that Lisa will fit in. Lisa is not really spoilt but her worrying mother always tries to make her into a 'young lady'. Mrs. Atwood thinks that every 'young lady' needs to know how to ride, but Lisa isn't really crazy about riding and horses.....yet.And things don't get any better when Stevie plays a rather mean joke on Lisa, calling it as 'one of the traditions' of Pine Hollow. Lisa, in return, plays an equally rather mean joke on Stevie and they become more like enemies instead of friends.
Lisa soon shows herself to be a quick learner and she finds out that she actually likes horses and riding. But she is still friendless..until Carole invites her to come to her favorite ice cream shop. Soon, Stevie, Carole, and Lisa becomes fast friends.
They start making plans for the MTO, the long-awaited Mountain Trail Overnight campout for the students of Pine Hollow. But, things aren't looking good when Stevie's parents tells her that unless she improves her grades, they won't pay for it. And Lisa doesn't really think that her mother will let her go.Read more ›
This book was about three girls, Lisa, Carole, and Stevie. They share only one thing in common; they are all horse crazy. Carole is disorganized, stevie is a practical joker and isn't good in school, and Lisa is a strait A student. If I had to be friends with one of them, I'd be a friend with Lisa because she always tries her hardest. In April there is a mountain trail ride overnight (MTO). With Stevie's math grades slipping and Lisa being new at the stables, Carole might have to go with Veronica the snob. This story is about three friends trying to get to go to the MTO together, and how they become best friends, and start the Saddle club.
Horse lovers would love this book. I recommended this book to girls because it's only about girls. This book is realistic fiction.
As a review mentioned, the book suffered by not exploring the characters' motivations. Lisa's mother and Veronica, the stable's spoiiled little rich girl, remain one dimensional.
However, it is hard to believe an author who knows enough about horses to write a book would put an inexperienced young rider (Veronica) on a stallion.
