In Council Bluffs, Iowa she was a beloved, talented quarter horse. But when Cotton Candy Sally arrived in New York City, they started calling her a nasty, sour nag. The girls at Bernadette's riding school were afraid of her, and after bucking off her riders right onto the pavement, Sally started spending more and more time alone, with her head tethered to her stall. Couldn't anyone find a way to tame her?

Twelve-year-old Kara fell in love with Sally and was determined to fix things. But her father had recently died, and her mother had no money to buy the spirited mare. Worse yet, Bernadette started talking about sending her "down the road" because she wasn't earning her keep. Where would she end up and what would happen to Kara, who finally found a way to be happy in the wake of her father's death?

About the Author

KAREN BELOVE discovered the magic of horses long ago, while mucking out stalls at a riding school in New York City. That's where she bought her first horse, and when her horse adventures began. Since then, she has been involved in many aspects of the sport, including dressage, eventing, and cross-country jumping.

Ms. Belove thought about writing The Sally Horse Chronicles when she first fell in love with horses at that riding school in New York -- and has now made the series a reality. She still spends much of her time in New York City, but has a home in upstate New York where she rides the beautiful horse trails of Dutchess County. Ms. Belove also has a golden retriever and four cats, all of whom love horses almost as much as she does.
