Recommends it for: english equestrians
great for tweens and teens who are aspiring equestrians. It speaks to me because i'm a competitive equestrian and know what the girls go through in training!!

I loved this book! The line between friends and enemies is thiner than ever. Allison and julia can not ride until january and Heather is pretty sure Jas has something to do with it, Meanwhile Jacob confesses tht he wants Sasha back!

Honestly I thought this was a good book. BUT the fact that they are 12-13 and have all this drama and boyfriends and wear makeup and go to parties and whatever. Seem like something a 20 year old would do so that is really annoying and bugs me.

I think this was very inspiring to Teens or any girls who ride horses. I can totally connect to this book in so many ways. For example, I fight with my riding team, I have boys fight over me and I love my jumping horse! (Peach) This book inspired me to ride in more shows with my team and to try always even when it might be impossible!

I enjoyed the first few books, but I feel like they're starting to drift from riding to drama and romance.
This was a good book in this series, however I am truly getting sick and tired of the whole Eric x Sasha x Jacob thing that apparently never will get resolved.

But even with that the book was good, there is also enough excitement because the YENT is coming closer and closer, and our characters are all working hard (some even work harder than is healthy for themselves and their horses) to make sure they get into YENT. I just loved the lessons, and the parts with the horses. Sasha was really great

I think what gets me about these books is that sports stories (including ones about competitive equestrian events) and school stories each have some established traits or tropes which the main character personifies and which give us a reason to root for their success even in situations where that means another character will fail, but Sasha Silver doesn't... have or do any of it.

In sports or pony stories, our heroine is usually a scrappy underdog without the privileges her competition has enjoy

This book was just as fabulous as the rest! I loved it so much! I don't think that this series could ever produce a bad book! I can't wait to start reading the next one!
In this canterwood crest book, all of Sasha's focus is on making the YENT team. The competition is crazy tough. Jasmine King, Sasha's big competition, is consistently trying to get Sasha to lose her focus so she doesn't make the team. Jacob and Eric aren't getting along, and at the end if the book he confessed to Sasha that he

As always, I absolutely loved this installment to the series! The riding was really the main focus, which I appreciated. The relationships are, as always, realistic and so adorable! I find that this author is really good at creating a very realistic world with very dynamic characters - not a single girl (or guy) is portrayed as being only good or evil. I also really do enjoy the little snippets of quizzes and such that Sasha takes. While this seems like a small detail, it does make the story see ...more

I just finished the book canterwood crest best enemies written by Jessica burkhart. This book could really happen so it is a fiction. This book is about two girls that go to a horse camp. And they get assigned certain horses that they need to practice on. Too win a very big horses show. And heather falls in love with her horse charm. I rated this book 4 stars because there were some parts that we're boring, but there was some parts that were very good. And I really liked it a lot.

When I read this book, I totally knew whose side I was on, of course Heather's! I mean I totally thought that Jasmine was a brat and at least Heather is smarter and can come back with good comebacks. Plus, I thought that she's a better rider. I loved how this book features a different rivalry, different than just the Heather and Sasha one. :)
