    I first read this book back in the 80's when I was in the middle of my horse phase I looked for it for many years but never found it until about a year ago so I was keen to read it againI forgot what a bitch Bonnie was She is a spoiled brat who seems to be putting her mother through hell because of the divorce She is determined to hate everyone be rude and nasty and get expelled again even if all this crap of hers is costing her mother money she no longer has You would think that ending up at a school with wonderful riding facilities would have been great for horse mad Bonnie but she is determined to make herself unpopular instead of enjoying herself for once This school would have been the best place for her if she had just given it a try instead of behaving in her usual manner and doing what she likes When I read this book as a kid I admired her as being a rebel but reading it now she is just a spoiled stuck up little madam who needs a good slapHer mother is as bad not setting boundaries for her daughter and never spending time with her Instead of forcing Bonnie to accept their new circumstances she does what people generally do when they have little contact with them throw money at them Struggling to give spoiled Bonnie everything she wants just feeds the monster that the girl has become This is something that Ruth recognises as being part of Bonnie's problemsI liked Ruth the riding teacher She feels insecure and out of place at such a posh school amongst the rich people she would rather avoid Ruth grew up with nothing and gets angry every time she hears spoiled rich people moan about their life She doesn't mix with the staff and is at a loss as to how to deal with Bonnie trying to reach out and be friends and when it is thrown back in her face she decides to bring her down at what the girl loves most riding Her plan is really crazy and will lead to her possibly losing her job if it failsIt is a good well written story for anyone who loves horses I used to get this book out of the library on a regular basis though I never owned a copy until now It is an interesting battle of wills between two strong and stubborn females who both need to win for their own reasons Children and YA readers will enjoy this one but it is suitable for all ages to enjoy

    Bonnie Wyndham’s mother has enrolled her at Almonside a school that pays particular attention to sports Since she has been kicked out of several schools Almonside is Bonnie’s last chance at private school At Almonside Bonnie can major in something she really loves Riding horses However her attitude is still just as bad and almost immediately she starts conflict with her riding instructor Ruth Caradon As they go head to head the uestion is who will win?Well written with a tight plot and interesting characters Troubled Bonnie is really a brat of the first order Ruth Caradon has issues of her own that she thought were in the past but dealing with Bonnie brings them back The battle of wills was interesting to watch as Bonnie acted on emotion and Caradon worked mostly on gut instinct The ending was uite a surprise Another great read by Alan DavidsonMany thanks to Straw Hat for providing me with a review copy Please see disclaimer page on my blog

    ueen Rider by Alan Davidson is a well written middle grader Davidson does a good job of developing the main character Bonnie Wyndham Bonnie is a trouble making teenager who is sent to a boarding school that has an elite jumping club As I got to know Bonnie I was curious to find out what caused her self destructive behavior However I was a little disappointed when the cause of her behavior was revealed I thought this part of the story could have been written with depth I felt that ueen Rider had a lot of potential to be a deeply emotional story but was disappointed when it fell flat Young readers who like horses will enjoy reading this book However I am not sure that it will appeal to a much larger audience
