Ride On

We rated this book:


Horse Girls Victoria and her best friend, Taylor, love riding horses. They hang out at Waverly Stables, ride, and compete in horse competitions. But Victoria doesn’t want to dedicate her whole life to horses and to afford horse riding lessons. When Victoria tells Taylor she doesn’t want to compete anymore, Taylor doesn’t understand, so Victoria transfers to Edgewood Stables. The meeting between Victoria and the other Horse Girls at the new riding stable didn’t go too well. Can Victoria make up with Taylor and get along with the new Horse Girls at Edgewood?

At first, I was really annoyed with Victoria and how rude and antisocial she was towards Norrie. Norrie was also a little extra, but both grew on me by the end of the book. I love the scene where Norrie suggested that Victoria read the episode summary on Wikipedia, and the reactions on both Sam’s and Victoria’s faces were hilarious. I sense a potential romance between Sam and Victoria, so I feel there is a possibility of a sequel coming. I thought the illustrations were okay, maybe not so much my style. I recommend this graphic novel to readers who love friendship and horse stories.
