Welcome to The Saddle Club Guide at tv.com
The Saddle Club is based on a book series by Bonnie Bryant and focuses on three girls who love horses. There names are Stevie Lake, Carole Hanson, and Lisa Atwood. They are in a group called The Saddle Club. They go on a bunch of adventures with horses and no matter what they go through, they stay best friends. When Lisa first came to Pine Hollow to take lessons Stevie and Carole thought she was just another Veronica. Veronica is the person who Stevie and Carole think is the stable brat. When Lisa first came to Pine Hollow Veronica tried to be friends with Lisa but when Veronica tried to hurt Stevie when she put her pager on Comanches saddle and called it to make it go off and try to hurt Stevie because Comanche would buck her off. Lisa and Carole showed up and Lisa saved Stevie by turning off the pager. They became friends and formed The Saddle Club. There were only two rules for this club and they were that you had to be love horses and you had to help your friends out when they needed help. If you have anything to contribute to this guide!

Carole Hanson-Carole is a bright girl with a natural riding ability. Devastated when her mother died of cancer, she almost gave up riding. But her father, U.S. Colonel Mitch Hanson, reminded Carole that her mother would have wanted her to follow her passion.
Lisa Atwood-Lisa is an Honor-roll student. Petite with classic good looks, Lisa dresses in designer clothes and would never wear anything as outrageous as Stevie, but she does admire her individuality. Lisa struggles to overcome the 'good girl' image and is eager to take on new challenges to prove her strength and stamina.
Stevie Lake-Stevie abandoned her given name of Stephanie almost before she could talk and was always a bit of a tomboy. Now, tired of being considered one of the boys, but uncomfortable with the preening of other girls her age, Stevie clings to the one thing that remains constant: her love of horses. When not dressed for the riding ring, Stevie has a funky, urban style of her own. She loves vintage clothing stores and often makes a bold, if sometimes outrageous, fashion statement.
The Girls Horses...
Starlight-Carole's horse. Originally called Pretty Boy. A stunning buckskin gelding, Starlight is a gentle and affectionate horse, totally devoted to his owner. Starlight seems to sense what Carole wants of him before she even asks. Information found from the official saddle club website
Belle-Stevie's horse. A dark bay Arabian Saddle bred mare originally called Blackie. Stevie shares and instant rapport with Belle which enables the young girls to capture the mare believing it is the horse of a local legend. When she found her, Belle was skin and bones, her mane and tail dull and mangy. The mare looked for all the world like her heart had been broken. Stevie earned Belle's trust and when the owner comes to claim the lost horse, Deborah forces her to admit that Belle and Stevie belong together. Information found from the official saddle club website.
