Read full description of the books Horse Sense:A spectacular tale about friendship and horses, which will delight all pony-mad children & teenagers as you long to join ‘the saddle club’!!
As a teenager who was (and still remains to this day) a horse and pony mad girl & equestrian enthusiast, The Saddle Club books were my most treasured and prized possession for they gave me hours of endless pleasure whilst promoting the joys of reading. I would plaster my walls with hundreds of horse and pony posters and shots of the ‘saddle club’ members, from the hit television drama series that still remains as ever extremely popular. Out of all the horse books I devoured as a child and teenager and then on into adulthood, I would have to say that the saddle club still remains one of my favorites & a series that is so extensive you will be kept busy collecting and reading them all. Character-driven with such memorable adventures (i.e. when the three girls first meet Veronica, or when they have to save Pine Hollow financially from a company ect.) These tales do live with you forever as the captivating and absorbing narrative is spot on, combining a mixture of horsing around with teenage trials & tribulations and the fun times as a kid; these stories will keep you entertained for hours and glued to the page.
Horse Sense follows the three members of The Saddle Club (Stevie, Carol and Lisa) whose individuality and quirkiness makes you instantly connect with them and able to empathize and relate to them, as they encounter innumerable situations within life. As a new member of the club Lisa feels left out as Carol and Stevie are so busy with important matters of their own, that they do not realize that their best friend is feeling neglected. This story instantly struck a cord for I recalled similar experiences during my own school years; a time in which you are so busy with homework, horses and family that those surrounding you can be somewhat aloof. I love the character of Lisa and so it was a real treat to be able to look at her from a more personal perspective and understand more about her & her family and life in general, whilst not detracting from the main central focus which is of course her friends group at the stables. I would say that ‘Horse sense’ is in a way detailed and insightful character studies, letting the readers take a more vivid look at one of the three girls and so I would highly recommend that you read this in the series. The part that touched me most was the horse head safety pins that are ‘badges’ for the group, and which I thought was delightful & charming and which showed Lisa’s caring side.
Bonnie Bryant is a fantastic writer whose characters are just so memorable and distinctive, from the show-off, spoilt Veronica DiAngelo to Stevie, Lisa and Carol who spend their days at Pine Hollow Stables with their favorite horses Patch (then Lisa had Prancer), Belle (Stevie’s horse) and Starlight (Carol’s horse). In 2001 a television drama series was created due to the popularity of the series that sadly ended in 2003, and then was renewed for a third season with new actors due to the previous ones being too old. The aim of the saddle club is so as to share their united love of horses and horse riding, which is mutual in all respects including their hatred for wealthy Veronica. Their rivalry between them and Veronica is apparent throughout the series during training for competitions and various horse shows, as the Saddle Club typically triumphs over their adversities, whilst sending a clear message to readers about the importance of friendship, teamwork & unity and selflessness. If you love horses and are up to around 15 or 16 max, then this series is a must-read with ‘Horse Sense’ as one of my favorites.

Read information about the authorAmerican author of children's books. She is best known for creating the intermediate horse book series The Saddle Club, which was published from October 1988 until April 2001. The Saddle Club chronicled the adventures of thirteen-year-old Lisa Atwood and twelve-year-olds Stephanie "Stevie" Lake and Carole Hanson. The series was static in time; the girls never aged in 101 books, 7 special editions, and 3 Inside Stories.
Bonnie Bryant also wrote two spin-off series: Pony Tails, aimed at beginning readers, and Pine Hollow, aimed at teenage readers. The 16 Pony Tails books followed the lives of eight-year-olds May Grover, Corey Takamura, and Jasmine James. Pine Hollow featured Carole, Lisa, Stevie, and their new friends in a series set four years after The Saddle Club. Unlike The Saddle Club, Pine Hollow conformed to a realistic timeline. The 17 books took place over the span of less than a year. Later a television show called The Saddle Club, based on the books, was filmed in Australia.
Bonnie Bryant wrote at least 38 The Saddle Club books and 2 Pine Hollow books herself; after that they were taken over by a team of ghostwriters, a common practice in long-running children's book series. Ghostwriters for the Saddle Club and Pine Hollow books included Caitlin Macy (sometimes credited as Caitlin C. Macy), Catherine Hapka, Sallie Bissell, Kimberly Brubaker Bradley, Helen Geraghty, Tina deVaron, Cat Johnston, Minna Jung, and Sheila Prescott-Vessey.
Bonnie Bryant is also the author of many novelizations of movies, including Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Karate Kid, and Honey, I Blew Up the Kid, written under her married name, B.B. Hiller. She also collaborated in the ghostwriting of The Baby-sitters Club Super Special #14: BSC in the USA, published under the name of its creator, Ann M. Martin.
Bonnie Bryant was born and raised in New York City. She met her husband, Neil W. Hiller, in college, where they both worked on the campus newspaper. They had two sons, Emmons Hiller and Andrew Hiller. Neil Hiller died in 1989. Many of Bonnie's books are dedicated to him.
