Synopsis | Cast | Production


Lisa, Carole and Stevie would seem to have it all - a great riding stable with an amazing coach, beautiful horses, and acres of trails to ride on, but for these 12 year old girls, the world is quickly expanding. Before they know it, the simplicity of childhood will be lost in the whirlwind of adolescence. As if pressures from the stable, caring for their horses, school, baby-sitting jobs, and parents weren't enough, now they are beginning to notice boys for the first time. In their ever-changing world, these girls have one thing they can count on: from preparing for a major horse show, to coping with tough issues like the death of a horse, they will go through it all together.
Set amidst the excitement of the horse world, each half-hour episode will take Stevie, Carole and Lisa on a journey of personal discovery and growth. Whether the girls uncover a thief in the stables, or save another rider's life on an overnight trail ride, all action/adventure stories will be character-driven. The focus will be on the relationships among the members of the Saddle Club and among the variety of interesting, unique and sometimes bizarre people who enter their world.
Pine Hollow Stables provides the central backdrop for each episode. Located in the small community of Willow Creek, about 20 kilometres outside a major urban centre, Pine Hollow is more than just a barn. A state-of-the-art riding facility, Pine Hollow boards 18 horses in modern, roomy stalls. The stable backs onto 130 acres of forest and mountain trails.
While the three heroines spend the majority of their time around Pine Hollow, some times stories will revolve around events at school and home. Occasionally, the girls will travel to other stables or riding camps. Wherever they go, they will encounter people and events that change forever they way they see themselves and the world around them.
