Stevie, Carol, and Lisa are looking for a new member to add to the Saddle Club but they are having difficulty finding someone who meets their two qualifications. The first qualification is that the new person has to be horse crazy and the second is that she has to help others. Stevie and Carole had been very busy with their projects and had been forgetting about Lisa and the club meetings that she scheduled. When a new girl named Estelle starts horseback riding lessons with the girls, Lisa starts to become friends with her. Lisa votes Estelle into the club without her friends' approval, but when Lisa tells Estelle and her other friends that Estelle is now a member, why doesn't anyone but she seem excited?

Horse Sense is the third installment in The Saddle Club series written by Bonnie Bryant. I really enjoyed this book the best of all out of the three Saddle Club books that I have read so far. The reason is because much more went on in this story than in the others and there was almost always a constant problem going on which had to get solved. Bonnie Bryant did a fantastic job of using descriptive words and with writing this excellent story. Horse Sense is an excellent book for girls who love horses and who are looking for a quick read.
