These were what I wasted hours upon hours of my 'tween' years reading. At the time, I wanted to read a series of books. I was annoyed by single books where you never found out what else was going on with the characters. Additionally, I was horse crazy and had already read all of the black stallion books owned by my local library. I had already read Black Beauty. I had even moved on to dog books and read everything by Jim Kjelgaard at the local library and other singles like Shiloh, Where the Red Fern Grows, Old Yeller, White Fang and so on. I was really hitting the end of the dog and horse books at the local library when I begrudgingly started reading these. So, why did I start reading them? Well, because I'd already tried Nancy Drew (okay, but no animals), Babysitter's Club (blegh) and The Boxcar Children (snore). They were easy for my mom to pick out for me even if I wasn't at the library that day. They were about horses, but, they were also about girls I couldn't relate to. First off, all of them had parents who could afford riding lessons OR had a stable near them that would trade work for lessons. When I first read that, I was just 'over the moon' excited because it seemed like there was finally hope that I might somehow end up working around and maybe even riding horses. At age 10, I broke out the yellow pages and called every riding stable listed. I also called the ones with ads in the newspaper. Surprise, surprise, nobody took work in exchange for riding lessons. NOBODY. Now, as an adult, I understand that this was more of a thing as late as the 60's and 70's which had pretty much died out by the 90's when I was attempting it. But, these were books which purported to be modern! So, I was pretty disappointed from then on when reading the books. Every time there was some line about how someone's mom didn't have enough money for boots but this kid would still keep their riding lessons by working cleaning stalls, I would think "Liars!" in my head and continue on. That was when I first began to understand the difference in the social classes. I understood that I was never going to get riding lessons. I understood that if my mom paid for gymnastics classes, she couldn't pay for the leotard, so, all the other girls were fancy in their matching team wear and I wore an old t-shirt and bike shorts and didn't get to go to meets. Anyways, I kept reading these books even though they felt like lies.. lol
I really liked the Saddle Club books set out at the "Bar None" ranch! Great name too :D There was something about the wild horses that I enjoyed a lot.
