Katie | 3 comments A girl/young woman joins a knight group (possibly a secret one? + contains men and women) and learns how to fight/ride a horse etc... I think, the group fights evil spirits in deserted villages which they travel to. Some characters may have powers (?) And there is a love story between her and one of the other knights. I seem to recall a carriage scene with her family near the start and her trying to teach herself to fight alone with straw dummy before she joins the group. I believe she joins the group after one of her friends from home also joins. I probably read this in 2014-2016.

Summer | 254 comments This is a long shot, but perhaps the Protector of the Small series by Tamora Pierce? There are four books, starting with First Test. She goes to knight school where she learns things like jousting, other students do have magic powers, and the fourth book involves her trying to rescue a group of kidnapped kids from an evil magician turning them into ghosts to power killing machines.

I've had a look and it definitely isn't that (or any of Tamora Pierce's work) but thank you anyway!!
