Early and very classic installment of Bonnie Bryant's long-running "Saddle Club" series. Carole, Stevie, and Lisa, three adolescent girls who take riding lessons at Pine Hollow Stables, are preparing for a gymkhana, a day of games and races. Unfortunately, the fourth member of their team is Stevie's brother Chad, who started riding because he has a crush on Lisa! Carole has met Kate Devine, a champion rider whose competitive streak has ruined the fun of riding for her. The individual plotlines all come together in a nice neat way, with plenty of insight and contemplation that's appropriate for this age range. More genuine and less formulaic than the later "Saddle Club" books. Kate Devine also appears in many of the later books. Please note that there is one ISBN for the old, new, and photo cover editions of this book.

Stevie, Carole, and Lisa are ready and excited for the upcoming gymkhana, a three-day event full of relays and games and fun - all on horseback, of course. The girls need a fourth team member, and surprisingly, Stevie's brother, Chad, fills in. Chad is not the most experienced rider, but he's entertaining, and they soon discover that he has a crush on one of them.

Carole also meets Kate Devine, a championship rider who is introduced in this book and later becomes a main character in the series. The girls think Kate would be the perfect fourth member to the Saddle Club, but unfortunately Kate has sworn off riding ever again.

HORSE POWER is the fourth book in THE SADDLE CLUB series, and it continues to be relatable and fun for the intended age group. With each book, readers get more and more attached to Stevie, Carole, and Lisa, while also being introduced to new characters, so it's a good thing the series is so long!
