This book was great I would recamend it to any horse lover in the world. The waiting to see what might happen next is amazing and you never would have guesed what the end is like.

this cover for this book was not personally made--it was stolen off a Ultimate horse book with pictures of horses. I found a steeplechasing picture and it is the exact same thing as this cover, the exact same form, and the horses are exactly the same as the picture in the book. the only thing changed was the female jockey but anyway, it was still non-profesionaly done and i dont respect that out of the TB series!

I loved this book it was fun to see a headstrong horse in the books who wanted to put up a fight!! And im not big on steeplechasing, but it was neat to read about it! E-mail me if you want to talk horses!

I am happy that Mike hasnt sold Serria but I am not a Chaser fan. It is preety cool but it doesnt catch my intrest as much as flat racing.

This book was good, but I wish Ashleigh and Wonder were in it more! I mean, come on! Everyone loves them, and they are slowly dissapearing, especially in the later books. Also, they talk about Top Hat being a big WHITE horse! Hello!!!!!!!!! There is no such thing as a white horse, except 4 an albino, but Top Hat's a Throughbred! He should be pale gray! They do this in other books, too and it makes me wonder if the author knows ANYTHING about horses. Other than hat, it was good

I really liked this book. I mean when Samantha and Tor started dating... I just couldn't beleive that Seirra was very high spirited race horse that no one could count on would be a wonderful steeplechaser. Exspecially when he clears a tree in the middle of a trail! I have all ways loved the TB series books and I couldnt beleive it when I found out Pride was injured. I almost started crying. I love all kinds of horses! I live in Kentucky on a small training and breeding farm. And I have done something that Ashleigh did with Wonder. I saved a horse. If you want to talk email me or IM me if I'm online!

This was a totally awesome book. I'm so glad sammy and Tor are a couple I think they'll be perfect like Ash and Mike. Its so cool how they raised a horse to be a 'chaser! I personally like racing but o well.

Sierra's Stepplechase was a page turner at the beggining, middle and end!! I liked the book so much because Samantha and Tor didn't want to give up on the wild colt Sierra. None of the staff members, accept Len thought Sam and Tor could do it!! Even though its a book I had faith in Samantha and Sierra.I don't want to tell you anymore, so I encourage you to go and read this book because its sooo good!!

I think that it was great that Samantha helped sierra find his true talent even though he was very stubborn. I don't think that Mike should have even thought of selling him when he wasn't performing, but it was a good book!

I have mixed feelings about this book. Even though it's suspenseful and great, i kinda agree with Charlie. Steeplechasing? stick w/ sumthin know stuff about. sierra coulda mad a cross country jumper or show jumper. oh well, great book.

This was an awesome book! I knew Sierra had heart right from the beginning even when he was acting really stubborn and Samantha got frusterated. I'm SO glad she kept believing in him...and pursuading Mike to ride him in the steeplechase which was PERFECT! This book was so real with its realistic discriptions and facts...it's almost as if I was riding along with Samantha and Sierra!
