I was excited to find this community, but sad that it seems to be in hibernation. Still, it looks like there are still people following it, so I thought I'd post my doubles/needs lists. I'm buying up the series on the pretext that surely within a few years one of my nieces will prove to be horse-crazy (they're 2, 4, and unborn at the moment, so it's a little early). But I'm reading them all as I find them, funny how that happens...
Anyway, my doubles are:
#3: Horse Crazy
#4 Horse Power (I have three copies of that, actually, so two to give away)
#10 Riding Camp (also 2 to give away)
#28 Stable Manners
#54 Gold Medal Rider
#69 Endurance Ride
I need #7, 11-17, 25, 31, 52, 53, 55, 56, 62-64, 67, 74, 76, 83, 87, and 92, plus all the special editions except Western Star.
I'd be happy to swap any of my dupes for any of my needs, or to send out my dupes for the cost of shipping, or swap them for something else cool (such as other horse books for, ahem, the nieces).

So, the third season of The Saddle Club featuring recast actors? Is really a happening thing, apparently.THE SADDLE CLUB PREMIERES: Saturday, March 7 at 10.00am on Channel Nine and WIN
The new cast will feature Lauren Dixon as Stevie, Victoria Campbell as Carole, and Ariel Kaplan as Lisa. I have never heard of any of these girls, and neither has IMDb; but then, I'm not Australian and not ten years old anymore. (Wikipedia now has them listed in the Saddle Club TV series entry
, but they don't have pages yet.) I'm sure more info will trickle out once the new episodes actually start.
I still find the phenomenon of recasting to be totally bizarre, but I've never been really into a show that did it, except for Party of Five. I think it would make more sense for these new actresses to play different characters at Pine Hollow (say, May, Corey, and Jasmine, just age them up appropriately -- it would not be the most horrendous thing this show has ever done to the canon), but maybe this is very common with children's shows and I've just never been watching the right ones.

I found a copy of this book in a second-hand bookshop the other day, which is great because I haven't read many of the later books. I could kind of tell that they were running out of ideas by that time though...did anyone else notice that the name of the horse (Protocol) and the owner (Mr. Crawford) came from the production companies Crawford Productions and Protocol Entertainment, which produce the Saddle Club TV series?
I didn't know whether to laugh or groan!

Does anyone know where one could find a near-complete to complete used set of the Saddle Club books for relatively inexpensive cost?

What's the book where Stevie and Lisa decide to find out the truth about Max's grandfather? I can't remember the main plot of the book, but I'm pretty sure it's one of the earlier books in the series. Thanks :)

I don't know how intent you guys are on collecting the books, but over at babysittersclub
, those of us who are/were collectors frequently have dreams about collecting. Usually they involve coming across new or different books that don't actually exist in the real world. These dreams supposedly slack off once you've finished your collection, but I had one about The Saddle Club last night (and I've been done with my Saddle Club book collection for a couple of years now).
In it, I discovered a "British" edition of #13 Starlight Christmas that was partially a graphic novel. So instead of Max saying that he was going out to check the trail, he said that he had to go out and make sure "[drawing of a bottle] + [drawing of a bottle] = [drawing of three bottles]" and Stevie said, "But one plus one doesn't equal three!" And Carole's mother was still alive and she and Colonel Hanson were both buying Starlight for Carole, which made even less sense than Stevie suddenly being a whiz at math.
So there you have it. I have never seen the real British versions of the books. I liked this one better.

For those who are interested, season 1 of The Saddle Club
was released on DVD this week, although it won't be in stock at Amazon until next Saturday. On the plus side: You can get it for $10.99 instead of $14.98.
I think it's kind of odd that Stevie is featured much more prominently on the front cover than Carole and Lisa, but I'm not familiar with the actresses, so maybe that explains it.
Also, I had the weirdest experience the other day while I was out shopping, like in public, at an American store (in the mall) and heard "Hello World" on the radio. I find it embarrassingly addictive.

GS New Media, Inc., a digital entertainment company based in Toronto, announced today that it has adopted Project Darkstar http://projectdarkstar.com), the breakthrough open source online game platform invented by Sun Microsystems, Inc. (http://sun.com) (NASDAQ:JAVA), to develop a virtual world for tweens and teens based on the popular TV series The Saddle Club™. GS New Media and Sun Microsystems will work together to develop a high-performance, broadly functional solution architecture as a basis for The Saddle Club Virtual World.
That said, I'm honestly not sure what that means. Is it like Second Life, but instead of islands you walk into Pine Hollow and can interact with Zach, Melanie, Kristi, and all those other characters who were made up for the TV show? My, the things you learn when you have "bonnie bryant" in your Google Alerts ...
I also appreciated this quote from the article:
"Given the international success of Bonnie Bryant’s original books it has been a wonderful experience to build on that original fan base ..." said Nick McMahon, CEO of Crawford Productions Pty Ltd in Australia.
Damn right, except, the show isn't really for the original fans. It's for the new ones. The ones who are a decade or two younger.
