4.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for young horse enthusiasts! 27 May 2014
By Kerry77
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My daughter started horse riding last year and absolutely loves it- and can't wait to become a helper up at the riding school she attends once she's old enough, my friends daughter is the same and she mentioned The Saddle Club dvd's and said her daughter watches them for hours, so I decided to try and get my daughter some, well after a few months we have movies plus series 1 and 2, and boy what a worthy purchase!! She has literally watched them every day! Unfortunately they are US imports which don't play on our bluray player or her DVD player, but this doesn't really bother her as she can watch them on the laptop- which also means we can watch something else on TV if we want- she has headphones so that we don't disturb each other- win win! Delivery took a little while but not long considering how far they've come, Overall a good buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful movie that got me obsessed to TSC... 25 Sep 2004
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
My mom bought me this movie in June of 2002. At first I didn't like it (I was more into Britney Spears), but in January of 2003, I started getting hooked to TSC! Now I'm totally obsessed with The Saddle Club! I'm also obsessed with the actresses in the movie!

The movie's about three girls, Stevie Lake (played by Sophie Bennett), Carole Hanson (Keenan Macwillaim), and Lisa Atwood (Lara Marshall). At first, Carole becomes an assistant vet, while Kristi (Kia Luby) is trying to get the stablehand to notice her, then Cobalt, Veronica's (Heli Simpon) horse breaks a leg from a jump and has to get put down. Then they hear that a foal is on the way. After that, Stevie's friend Tina (I'm not sure who plays her) come to town and stays at Stevie's house, while Lisa's auditioning for a play, and Carole's foal watching. Finally, Stevie and Lisa decide to foal watch too, and the foal, Samson is born.

If you're interested in buying Saddle Club merchandise, there's some sold on amazon. There's even more sold on shop.abc.net.au and all the CDS and singles are sold on shock.com.au I hope this review was helpful!

Although I do not have the Saddle Club Movie, I do get Discovery Kids and the Saddle Club is on it.This Show Rocks!!!I love it and watch it whenever i can.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it (from their #1 fan) 26 Aug 2004
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This movie is terrific! I love TSC (The Saddle Club) and I just happen to be their biggest fan! I have autographs I got in the mail from them including:

*A letter from Kia Luby (Kristi)

*An autographed postcard signed by Heli Simpson (Veronica)

*An autographed picture of Heli Simpson

*An autographed picture of Keenan Macwilliam (Carole)

*An autographed picture of Sophie Bennett

It's too bad I can't go to any of their tours since I live in America. It's also too bad I don't have an autograph from Lara (Lisa). Bye people who think their a Saddle Club fan when I know I'm one (including the Emily girl who says only Sophie can act when they all can and she doesn't even have a chance to be on TSC)!

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest series ever! 23 Aug 2003
By Corianna - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This is the greatest series of books and dvds I've ever seen! I've read many of Bonnie Bryants amazing books that tell of the three girls, Lisa Atwood, Carole Hanson and Stevie Lake about their adventures at Pine Hollow, the perfect stable. I've also watched the first DVD about one million times this summer and last. Now this. This one tells about how the girls met, what it was like and going on one of their favorite trail rides of the year, The MTO. (Mountain trail overnight) It all starts when Lisa first goes to Pine Hollow and Veronica pretends to be her friend since Kristi is under Red's spell. Then Lisa accidently spooks Camanche, Stevie's horse, and Stevie hates her for life. Then, to make it worse, Lisa finds out that Veronica is up to something really bad. She's going to call her pager that Veronica slipped under Camanche's saddle. Camanche was acting up, so he spooked, but luckily Lisa saves the day. Then it's time for the MTO. The Saddle club meets a cute boy, Phil Marsten, whom Stevie has a crush on. But Veronica wants him for herself, so she pretends to get hurt on Cobalt, her beautiful stallion, but instead, Cobalt really does freak out and Veronica is left in grave danger. When the Saddle club finds Cobalt racing back to their camp ground, they worry. Is Veronica's trick going to lead her into disaster? Or is the Saddle club going to make it in time to save her? It's a great DVD. You can also catch the episodes on TV on Discovery kids!

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended 28 Jun 2005
By Only-A-Child - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The 'Saddle Club' is a modern version of Walt Disney's 1955-58 'Spin and Marty'. It is set in Australia and 'Pine Hollow' replaces the 'Triple R Ranch'. It has Stevie (Spin), Lisa (Marty), and Carol, the friends who call themselves the 'Saddle Club'. Both shows are hard to beat because a fantasy shared by most kids is to hang out with horses-ALL THE TIME. Instead of singing songs around the campfire, the girls are shown singing in a recording studio in the closing credits (which adds to the fantasy).

Both Saddle Club and Spin & Marty are little gems that kids will love until ages 11-13, secretly watch for another year, and then come back to in their mid-20's, wishing they were that age again. Most of the critical comments here are from kids who want to demonstrate to themselves that they have outgrown this stuff. I see little basis for criticism because 'Saddle Club' is pretty much up front about what it is and it delivers what it promises. If you don't want or need a straightforward story about the values of friendship, personal responsibility, and saddle club hugs; then don't watch.

While it is true that the episodes are somewhat formulaic, full of positive values, and almost always conclude with a mandatory happy ending; the plots revolve around some very serious subjects and bad things do happen to good people. Horses die, Carol struggles to come to terms with her mother's death, kids make mistakes that have serious negative consequences for themselves and others, and people that the kids are very fond of go away. It is not as lightweight as it first appears.

The show is amazingly strong on all areas of technical production. The camera shots are often very tight on the characters' faces and lots of reaction shots are used, the audio is excellent, and the editing is fast-paced and logically sequenced. Most shows could learn a lot from the way 'Saddle Club' is shot and edited.

The acting is a little weak, especially by the supporting characters. But Lara Marshall (Lisa), Keenan MacWilliams (Carol), and Heli Simpson (Veronica) are all solid. If they weren't solid they would not survive all those close-ups and reaction shots, the director would have abandoned his tight shot style since it exposes acting weakness.

The real gem of this cast is Zachary Bennett's little sister Sophie (Stevie). She looks like an expressive Lindsey Lohen and has made her character the most interesting of the group. Sometimes this is a self-fulfilling process as the writers pick up on who is the strongest actor and place more demands on them. Bennett is a fine dramatic actress who also teams well with Heli Simpson for comic relief. And Stevie's unlikely semi-romance with Phil has a strangely 'real' feel to it.

together we are, brighter than the sun; together we are, the calm inside the storm;

together we are, everything we need; together we are, more than the sum of us

Then again, what do I know? I'm only a child.
