OMGosh, that was the Kate Devine? Carole and her dad go on a vacation to visit her dad's old military friends, who now have a daughter named Kate. Kate Devine is a champion horseback rider who has won many awards. Carole and Kate get along naturally and become BFFs, but why didn't Kate tell Carole that she rode horses and why is it that she wants to quit riding forever? The Saddle Club members, Carole, Stevie, and Lisa, are all excited about the gymkhana that they planned together. With much persistence, the three girls convince Kate to help out with the special event. Can the three Saddle Club members manage to persuade Kate Devine to continue riding again and join their horse club?

Horse Power is the fourth book in the series and by far the most enjoyable! The author, Bonnie Bryant, did a very nice job of writing this interesting story. I thought Kate Devine seemed like she would be a wonderful person to have for a friend, and she has a great personality. This is a very quick read that can keep your attention pretty well. Horse Power is a great book for girls ages 9-12 who love horses.
