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.

My favorite Saddle Club book. I read a lot of Pony Pals, Heartland, and Saddle Club books when I was little, but will not be able include them all on this sight. Now that I'm older I don't like them as much.
