Andi Carter has just turned nine. She and her palomino, Taffy, are old enough to be a real horse-and-rider pair at last! With a beautiful new saddle, Andi's sure she is ready to learn to trick ride like her friend Riley used to do before he left the ranch.
Sadly, big brother Chad knocks down any
trick-riding plans, but Andi cheers up when she discovers a new friend
at her special spot. Her fun with Sadie is soon threatened, though. They
are caught in the middle of a boundary quarrel between the two
families. Both Sadie's pa and Chad are stubborn as mules and neither
will back down.
Can Andi and Sadie hang on to their friendship while the adults are fighting?
About The Author
Susan K Marlowstarted writing stories when she was ten years old. I never
planned on becoming a published author. I just liked writing stories.
But eventually others found out about my secret "writing" and encouraged
me to submit.
I love to teach. I taught in Christian schools
before I home schooled. After twenty years, I finished home schooling
but find myself "back in the saddle" as I help other home schooling
families, including my grandchildren.

Andi “Saddles Up” is a visit back with Andi Carter at the Circle “C”
Ranch located near Fresno California, and the year is 1877. As the book
opens delightful Andi is about to celebrate her ninth birthday, and
being the youngest in the family, and rather special to all, she is
delighted in her gifts.
A book geared to ages 7 to 10, grade level 2
to 5, but as an adult kept me in mind of my favorite childhood books,
sure to make your child smile, and think back to a different time in
There are some really good lessons in this one; maybe
the heart of children is the way to go. Andi does learn a very hard and
painful lesson here also, and a good example that we need to listen to
I received this book through Kregel Publishing and was not required to give a positive review.
