Sasha Silver is ready for more. She's enrolled in Canterwood Crest, a serious riding school. But in the first hour, she loses control of her frightened horse - causing an accidental spill. In doing so, she made her first enemy.

Luckily, Sasha adores her roommate, Paige, who isn't involved in the equestrian side of school. Canterwood Crest is a huge step up from her previous riding experiences. Sasha hopes that she can live up to the school's reputation and her riding instructor's expectations.

After her first day, it's clear that Sasha can handle the riding portion of school. However, Heather's not used to sharing the spotlight. She senses competition from Sasha and it becomes her personal mission to take Sasha down.

Sasha never dreamed she'd have to deal with mean girls on top of challenging classes, long riding lessons, and competing to make the advance riding team. She's determined to come out on top, but first she has to go through Heather.

This series is THE SADDLE CLUB meets THE CLIQUE in a seriously fun and addicting read. Sasha could be your best friend: she's smart but relaxing and knows how to have a good time. Plus, she's determined and can hold her own against Heather. While Sasha might not always like Heather (or her comments); she can sympathize with her. She's a great character who shows depth and wisdom.
