Glory Ride

James Lorimer & Co, Canada, 2000

Chloe Anderson dreams of riding her horse, Dickens, to a spot on the Ontario Young Riders'

Eventing Team. As the competition approaches, however, she's haunted by the memory of her

former horse Tess, and of the terrible accident they suffered trying to clear one jump in particular -
the Trakhener. Slowly Chloe learns that the greatest obstacles to success aren't on the course at all.

Shadow Ride

Bronwen Smith excels at the dangerous sport of eventing, overcoming every obstacle as she
trains for the North American Young Riders' Championships. Outwardly a success, Bronwen is
inwardly nervous and unhappy, pushing herself so hard she doesn't have time to make friends.
To make matters worse, she is convinced that her own teammates are turning against her.
