Who says teammates have to be friends?

When Sasha Silver and her horse, Charm, arrive on the campus of the elite Canterwood Crest Academy, Sasha knows that she's in trouble. She's not exactly welcomed with open arms. One group of girls in particular is used to being the best, the brightest, and the prettiest on the team, and when Sasha shows her skills in the arena, the girls' claws come out.

Sasha is determined to prove that she belongs at Canterwood. Will she rise to the occasion and make the advanced riding team by the end of her first semester? Or will the pressure send Sasha packing?

Home (Bitter) Sweet Home

Now that Sasha Silver and her horse, Charm, have proven that they're worthy competitors for the Canterwood Crest equestrian team, Sasha's psyched to get back to school...until self-proclaimed It girl, queen bee, and owner of the I'm-so-way-better-than-you-are attitude, Heather Fox, is assigned as Sasha's riding partner.

Not. Good.

And when Heather starts spending a little too much QT with Sasha's almost-boyfriend, Jacob, the partnership is put to the ultimate test.

She's moved around enough in the past several years, she's got the "new girl code down.

  1. Lay low. No one wants the new girl thinking she owns the school by day one.
  2. But not too low. Girls with self-confidence who can assert herself tell others: I should not be underestimated.
  3. Don't ambush the "cool kids" just because you want to fit in. Let people come to you.

But Canterwood Crest Academy isn't just any school. And the students aren't just any students. They're driven, insanely smart-slash-talented, and they don't play by any rules. They're all. Like. Lauren.

canterwood crest coming soon

Home for ChristmasComing this spring, you'll meet twelve year old Fallon Black, princess of California and an A-level rider.

Fallon, who rode before she could walk, attends the prestigious West Coast Prep—an equestrian boarding school in California.

For years, Fallon's had her sights set on one of our favorite East Coast riders, Sasha Silver.

But Fallon's obsession with being better than Sasha is causing Fallon to overlook one very important rider who is just about to dethrone Fallon: Grace Holt. Fallon's stepsister and her pony are nipping at Fallon's heels.

Grace, a year younger than Fallon, attends West Coat Prep, too. Unlike Fallon, Grace doesn't follow Sasha's every move. Instead, she follows her sister's.

Sit deep in your saddle and hold tight.

"West Coast, represent and put your hands up"—as Katy Perry sings.

It's time to delve into the world of equestrians who train with pop stars, fellow students who spend winter break in Aspen, and a boarding school where everyone rides.

Competition. Never. Stops.

Pack your suitcase because we're going to California!

Follow Fallon aka Lexi who models for her on Twitter!

This brand new e-novella series will debut this spring! More to come!
