Reader Reviews

Riding Holiday
This has to be one of the best books I have ever read. I like it because I enjoy riding and it has lots of mystery. Kate would be my favorite character. I like her because she is very laid back and soothing. My favorite horse is Fiery Lad. I like him because he is wild. If I were to rate this book I would give it 10 out of 10!

RIDING HOLIDAY
THIS BOOK IS ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS I'VE READ SO FAR, I LIKE ALL THE SUSPICION IN IT, AND ALL OF THE CHARACTERS IN IT, SOME OF THE STORY MAKES ME WANT TO NOT STOP READING IT. THE CHARACTERS IN IT [IZZY AND KATE] HAVE TO TRY AND MAKE THE HORSES RACE FUN.
