Series 3

Series 2

Series 1

Overview

Series Three of The Saddle Club continues with stories and characters based on the internationally popular novels written by Bonnie Bryant, and contains the elements that made the novels and the first two series so popular: friendship and a love of horses.

The three heroines, Stevie, Carole and Lisa have formed The Saddle Club at Pine Hollow Stables where they keep their horses: Belle, Starlight and Prancer. While the girls are very much individuals, their love of horses has given their friendship a solid basis and while they may often disagree or even fall out over a situation, their loyalty to The Saddle Club and what it stands for always brings them back together.

This third season will also feature three brand new characters created especially for this series. Veronica, the millionaire’s spoilt daughter will befriend new rich girl Desiree Biggins in hope of gaining an ally to torment The Saddle Club but instead, Veronica will gain a conscience and best friend. And Simon, a computer savvy student arrives at Pine Hollow but his fear of horses initially keeps him from actually getting on a horse until he falls in love with Desi’s temperamental horse, Midnight. Melanie, Lisa’s bubbly little sister makes friends with Jess, the kooky carnival kid and, after the girls adopt a mischievous stray miniature donkey – aptly named Trouble, the trio have tremendous fun running havoc at Pine Hollow.

Each of the episodes focuses on high stakes adventure and horse action along with humorous hi-jinks to create a sure fire mix of drama and comedy. This series also takes on themes of friends and siblings falling out, competition, jealousy and misunderstanding…and, of course, making up.
