Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“A standout. . . . Everything comes together here—setting, dialogue, horse details and, most impressively, voice.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Tough-as-nails fourteen-year-old Sid may not have expensive boots like the privileged teen riders in Virginia, but she knows her way around horses. Working with her uncle since childhood, she's learned to evaluate horses, break and train them, care for them . . . and ride like a professional. Amid turmoil at home, she dreams of becoming a catch rider—a show rider who can ride anything with hooves. In this salty, suspenseful teen novel, an opportunity to ride a top-notch horse in an equitation show takes the small-town girl all the way to Madison Square Garden.

Synopsis:

In this powerful story of horse people, Sid pursues her dream of becoming a catch rider—a show rider who can ride anything—despite her poor background and the ferocious competition from more privileged girls. An authentic behind-the-scenes portrayal of a show barn and the elite, demanding world of equitation.

Synopsis:

Sidney Criser knows her way around horses, no question. Working with Uncle Wayne, a skillful horse trader, she has learned to assess horses, break and train them, care for them, treat them in medical emergencies, and ride anything that moves. With a chip on her shoulder because she has to struggle for everything and often gets nothing, she likes horses better than most people.An unexpected opportunity to ride an amazing horse in an equitation show throws Sid into a competitive world where her passionate desire to succeed brings struggle, heartbreak, and hope.
