The place to talk about Bonnie Bryant's The Saddle Club, Pine Hollow, and Pony Tails
Welcome to Pine Hollow Stables. Here's the place where you can reminisce, ask questions about, or post fanfiction about the book series The Saddle Club, Pony Tails, and Pine Hollow by Bonnie Bryant Hiller.

Community Rules

  • This is a community for The Saddle Club, Pony Tails, and Pine Hollow. Maybe talking about The Saddle Club makes you think about that old Thoroughbred book by Joanna Campbell, your brand new Welsh pony, or your equine studies course in college. That's fine. However, this is not a place for discussion about Paris Hilton, Harry Potter, or fly fishing. There are other communities for that.
  • We welcome pictures, news stories, links to other stuff, fanfiction, fanart, complaints, nitpicks, questions, trades, sales, wishlists, comments, discussion, and memories.
  • Anyone can join this community, but you must join to post entries. Anyone can comment on an entry.
  • Lots of people have books they want to trade or sell, and you're welcome to put up lists of the books you have or want. I want to stress that it is polite to offer to pay for the books or shipping, or offer books in trade. If someone sends you books, especially for free or for the cost of shipping only, I can't force you to thank him or her, but it is expected. Treat trades in this community exactly as you would sales on Amazon or eBay. This community cannot accept responsibility if the book gets lost in the mail or the other party fails to deliver.
  • You are welcome to post pictures, articles, videos, and links. Pictures larger than 400 pixels should go behind a cut tag. Similarly, articles or pieces of fiction longer than 100 words should also go behind a cut tag. Information on using a cut tag can be found here.
  • Please be polite and don't flame.
