Shout Out - Saddle Club Bindup 1 and 2

The Saddle Club stars three heroines, Stevie, Carole and Lisa, who form The Saddle Club at the Pine Hollow Stables. Each character has a distinctly different personality but all share an equal love of horses and a strong loyalty to each other. Random House have released bindup versions of the classic books, with two stories per volume.

Saddle Club Bindup 1: Horse Crazy / Horse Shy

Carole Hanson and Stevie Lake have been best friends ever since they met at Pine Hollow Stables. So when Lisa Atwood shows up for her first riding lesson dressed in fancy riding gear - acting chummy with the snobbiest girl in town - the girls aren't sure she'll fit in.

But Lisa works hard, and Carole and Stevie can't help admiring her natural riding talent. Most importantly, the three girls share a special bond that make them fast friends: their love of horses. With the formation of the Saddle Club, the girls start making plans for the long awaited Mountain Trial Overnight Camp.

A tragic accident makes Carole lose the one thing she loved most in the world and she swears to never ride again.

Saddle Club Bindup 2: Horse Sense / Horse Power

Stevie Lake, Carole Hanson, and Lisa Atwood are the best of friends and charter members of the Saddle Club. But now the Saddle Club is in trouble. It seems Carole and Stevie are too busy with other things and 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. With the approaching gymkhana the girls pull together. They have waited for this event for so long!

As the day draws near, Carole introduces the other girls to her new friend Kate Devine. Carole begins to teach Kate the basics of riding, only to find out that Kate is much more experienced than she's letting on - she's a champion rider!

Could Kate become the fourth member of the Saddle Club? Plus, Stevie's brother Chad starts to ride at Pine Hollow and guess which member of the Saddle Club he has a crush on?
