Glory Ride

by Tamara Williams

The competition for the prestigious Ontario Young Riders' Eventing Team is just around the corner, and fourteen-year-old Chloe Anderson has to make the cut. At least that's what her father believes.

Chloe Anderson dreams of riding her thoroughbred gelding, Dickens, to a spot on the Ontario Young Riders' Eventing Team. She wants more than anything to compete for her province at the North American Young Riders' Championship.

As the competition approaches, however, she's haunted by the memory of her former horse Tess, and of the terrible accident they suffered trying to clear one jump in particular--the Trakhener. Slowly Chloe learns that the greatest obstacles to success aren't on the course at all.

Glory Ride is a thrilling story about a girl who faces her fears and finds her voice in the process.
