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.

A series of novels for young readers and horse lovers of all ages, Show Strides is by The Plaid Horse publisher, Piper Klemm, and Rennie Dyball, an author, equestrian, and contributing writer 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.

In book #2, Confidence Comeback, Tally Hart just went to her first A-rated show with her new trainer at her barn, Quince Oaks--and it was a competition that she'll never forget.

But back at home, the working student and newly-minted catch rider faces and 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.

Show Strides Book #3, Moving Up and Moving On: After a successful trip to Devon, the Field Ridge team returns home to Oaks for the summer, where life at the barn is as busy as ever.

A jumper rider named Jacob and his horse Carlo begin trailering in for lessons with trainer Ryan, and the girls learn that being a boy in the sport has its own unique challenges.

Tally and Goose are improving with each show, and Mac struggles with body confidence as they head toward their big summer finale, Pony Finals.
