Read Show Strides! Our Very Own Series of Horse Novels

Here at The Plaid Horse, we are proud and excited to bring you Show Strides, a series of novels about riding, horse shows, and what it takes to succeed in the sport we all love.

Aimed at both young readers and horse lovers of all ages, Show Strides is written by The Plaid Horse publisher, Piper Klemm, and Rennie Dyball, an author, equestrian, and editorial coordinator for The Plaid Horse.

In book #1, School Horses and Show Ponies, you’ll meet Tally, a working student who loves riding in the lesson program at Quince Oaks.

But Tally’s barn family is about to get a lot bigger when a new A-circuit trainer arrives at the farm with clients like Mac, a girl Tally’s age who is moving up a division on her own pony hunter.

While the riders face different challenges, they come to learn how much they have in common as they chase their riding dreams together.

But back at home, the working student and newly-minted catch rider faces an uncertain future. Will she get to keep riding sales ponies? Go back to lessons on the barn's school horses?

Meanwhile, her good friend Mac Bennett is finding her own footing in the medium pony hunter division and working toward the biggest show goal either rider could imagine.
