Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-6-- Close friends Lisa, Stevie, and Carole share a passion for horses. During the summer that Carole monitors the mare Delilah's pregnancy, Stevie is charged with inventing gymkhana events and Lisa decides to write formal rules for their saddle club. Their preoccupations cause separation pangs among the friends until Delilah's foaling proves that, acting as one, they are a winning team. The vet congratulates the girls for a successful delivery, but none of the standbys cuts the umbilical cord or accounts for the afterbirth. More plausible than Ann Sheldon's "Linda Craig" series (Archway), the "Saddle Club" still lacks originality. Steer readers to Dryden's Riding Home (Bantam, 1988), which adds stepsister conflict, or Hall's Ride a Dark Horse (Morrow, 1987), which blends horsemanship and mystery. --Patricia G. Harrington, Phoenix Public Library

From the Publisher

Stevie Lake, Carole Hanson, and Lisa Atwood are the best of friends and charter members of the Saddle Club, bonded together by their love of horses. But now the Saddle Club is in trouble! Stevie has been picked by Max, the owner of Pine Hollow Stables, to plan some games for its upcoming horse show. And Carole is busy helping the vet care for Delilah, the mare who is soon to give birth to a foal sired by Cobalt, Carole's beloved stallion. Neither of them seems to have time for Lisa, who's been drawing up an elaborate constitution for the club, including rules for meeting attendance. Lisa is getting tired of being the only one at club meetings! Unless the threesome decides to stick together, there won't be any Saddle Club and no fun at Pine Hollow Stables. And isn't that what the Saddle Club is all about? --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I can't believe how this book was so exciting! I couldn't also believe it when Lisa is not seeing that the french girl is lying to her. A young white horse??? I'm glad Stevie and Carole got to Lisa first. It Was VERY funny when Stevie was trying to invent the gymkhana games on her own. it was exciting to see Delilah foal and how Carole learned alot on horse care when foaling time comes around. Bryant does a great job of keeping the reader hanging on in this book.

Format: Paperback
HORSE SENSE is the third book in THE SADDLE CLUB series, and it seems that although Stevie, Carole, and Lisa all love being in the club, they're having trouble finding time for each other. Carole is monitoring the pregnancy of one of the mares at Pine Hollow, Stevie is in charge of coming up with gymkhana events, and Lisa decides to make official rules for the club, and possibly even add a new member.

Lisa meets Estelle and thinks she'd be a great addition to the club, but Stevie and Carole are too busy with their individual projects and they keep forgetting the meetings that Lisa has scheduled. Lisa invites Estelle into the club without consulting her friends, and they don't seem too happy. It finally takes the birth of a foal to bring the three girls back together and restore the Saddle Club.

I've been a fan of THE SADDLE CLUB series for a very long time, and while HORSE SENSE isn't one of my favorites, I'm sure it will still appeal to horse-loving girls everywhere.

Over all this book was a tipical book of the Saddle Club. I was very surpised at how all of the members acted in the book! There are a few surprises and all the girls of the saddle club are all focussed on there own thing and it seems like they don't have time for eachother! Majorly important things happen in this book so if you are interested about reading a lot of the books from this series this is a must have!

While Stevie prepares games for an upcoming gymkana, Lisa develops a constitution for the Saddlel Club, and Carole prepares the stable mare Delilah for her upcoming birth. The girls get so caught up in their own projects that they forget to stick together. It takes the birth of the foal to show the girls they're better off when they pull together.
