Will Dylan give up riding for good? Dylan Becker used to be one of Christina Reese's best friends. They like to do all the same things. He even loved horses as much as she did! But lately, Dylan has been spending more time playing soccer than riding his horse, Dakota. In fact, he's thinking of giving up riding entirely--only one "little girls" like horses, he says. Christina can't believe it. Has Dylan really outgrown his love of riding? Even worse, has he outgrown their friendship? Whether jumping a cross-country course, galloping a powerful racehorse, or just riding on the trails, only one thing matters to Christina and her friends: the special bond between horse and rider. If you love horses, then you'll love reading all the books in the "Thoroughbred" series.
