Catch Rider

Jennifer H. Lyne

In this impressive debut, 14-year-old Sidney pursues her dream of becoming a catch rider--a show rider who can ride any horse. She is tough-as-nails and she knows her way around horses. Working with her Uncle Wayne since childhood, Sid has learned to evaluate horses, break and train them and ride like a professional. But times are desperate. There’s turmoil at home and her uncle is just about to drink himself to death. Despite fierce competition from more privileged girls, Sid lands an opportunity to ride a top-notch horse in a show that takes the small-town girl all the way to Madison Square Garden.
