    Arabian Challenge (Thoroughbred Series #22)

    Up until book 22, I loved the TB books. All of the characters were great, esp. Cindy. Then this book came out. I couldn¿t STAND it!! Cindy¿s personality was completely changed. Cindy NEVER used to care about Max except as a friend, and now most of the book is about what¿s going on between them. Give me a break! She is only 16! Before this book Cindy never would have ignored Ashleigh¿s advice. And she never would have been so obsessed with winning. Before she cared about the horses, not the trophies. And she was way to emotional. If she wasn¿t crying, then she was pouting or getting mad at someone. Up until now, Karen Bently¿s books about Cindy have been great. WHAT HAPPENED TO ARABIAN CHALLENGE???

    CINDY BEAT ASHLEIGH?? NO WAY!!!

    THIS BOOK IS OK. IV'E READ WAY BETTER BOOKS BEFORE!I PERSONALLY HATE CINDY! SHE'S SUCH A SNOTY SPOILED BRAT!AND HOW CAN AN UNEXPERIENCED RIDER BEAT A TRIPLE CROWN WINNIG JOCK,LIKE ASHLEIGH??? ASHLEIGH'S A MUCH BETTER RIDER THAN SPOILED LITTLE CINDY!! CINDY ALWAYS GETS HER WAY. AND WHEN SHE TOOK CHAMPION OUT AT NIGHT AND SAID THAT CHAMPION WAS HERS, WHEN HE BELONGED TO ASHLEIGH!! IF I HAD BEEN ASHLEIGH I WOULD HAVE SCRACTHED LIMITLESS TIME, AND RIDEN CHAMPION MYSELF!!! I HAVE 39 TB BOOKS AND THIS IS NOT NEAR MY FAVORITE!!!!!!

    This is the best book!!!!

    Arabian Challenge is one of my two most favi=orite Thoroughbred books! It is great. Cindy has always been my favorite character. And her horses are always the ones I like a lot. Champion is my favorite. In Arabian Challenge, Cindy finally gets to ride him in a race, because Ashleigh is riding Limitless Time in the same race. Cindy doesn't know how she can compete against Ashleigh, who has been her teacher and friend since she came to Whitebrook. You must read this book!

    one of the best

    ok guys, first of all, this was a good book, even though cindy shouldn't have taken champion of his stall. secondly, all of you guys that are sayin cindy shouldn't of ridden him are insane!! cindy and champion have a very special bond, and it was good for cindy to ride him, even though he likes ashleigh, but he liked cindy more, and besides cindy didn't know limitless very well (and vise versa)so, he might not of gone as well for her. i think cindy is cool, and you guys need to learn how to understand these books ,because they are not for 9 yr olds. i'm 12, and i'm reading them, and i have a 9yr old cousin that wouldn't know what the heck he was reading and wouldn't understand it at ALL!!!!! so, you guys just shut up and stop reading them if you don't like em'!!! you can email me if u have anything to say.

    Good Book!!!

    So far I have read all the books in this series... and they're great. This book is one of my favorites. It tells about how hard Cindy worked to get the chance to ride in the Dubani. It tells about how hard it was for her competing with Ashleigh. This is a GREAT book and I loved it!!

    A Ok Book.

    I think Cindy souldn't have ridden in the Dubai Cup. i mean it was her 3rd race!! I mean that is like the hardest race in the world and little orphan Cindy, stuck up and snobby and jelous, get to ride in it!!!! and Champion can't win all the races. i liked all the books but the ones with Cindy in them. i'm glad she moves away in a little bit.
