In HORSE SHY, the second book in THE SADDLE CLUB series, Stevie, Carole, and Lisa finally get to go on the long-awaited Mountain Trail Overnight (or MTO). They have a great time, and things get even better for Carole when she gets back: she gets to care for Veronica's stallion, Cobalt. Veronica may be snobby, but Cobalt is beautiful and Carole loves him.

Then there's a tragic jumping accident and Cobalt is killed. Carole is devastated and swears that she'

Stevie, Carole and Lisa are best friends. They all belong to a club that loves horses, and rides. When a selfish and rich girl in their riding group causes her horse, Cobalt a fine stalion to die, Carole says she is done riding forever. Lisa and Stevie need to get Carole back on a horse.

I loved this book because I love all the saddle club books and I ride 3 times a week. It is a little sad, though not heartbreaking.
This is a really great book. It shows coruge and yes I had a little disappointment because on the show carol was there when the tragic acsedent happened, the only fult I think is that the book is really ahead of the show
And max isent as bossy and serious in the show
If you love horses and want to have a story to use as an example this is it. Used it to help the niece get back on the horse.
Lecture complètement régressive d'une série culte de mon enfance, grand galop ! :)
Good young adult book. I read this a long time ago and I still remember the horse's name!
