Chloe Anderson dreams of riding her thoroughbred gelding, Dickens, to a spot on the Ontario Young Riders' Eventing Team. She wants more than anything to compete for her province at the North American Young Riders' Championship.

As the competition approaches, however, she's haunted by the memory of her former horse Tess, and of the terrible accident they suffered trying to clear one jump in particular--the Trakhener. Slowly Chloe learns that the greatest obstacles to success aren't on the course at all.

Glory Ride is a thrilling story about a girl who faces her fears and finds her voice in the process.

Awards

Winner - Canadian Children's Book Centre Our Choice Selection - 2000

Winner - Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario Award for Women Writers - 2000

"...deeper themes are woven into the main plot until the story takes on a surprising heft. That the author knows her way around a horse stable is evident in her background details. She also shows a keen understanding of family relationships and how they can make or break the best of us. Highly recommended."

- Steve Pitt Canadian Book Review Annual

"...the author...must be commended for her ability to tell a gripping story and create believable...characters."

- Elizabeth Cran Charlottetown Guardian

...it is about a young girl facing the female issues of the '90s, including dating, peer pressure and perfectionism."

- Chris Thomas Tuesday Times-Reformer

"The book offers all the thrill and excitement of riding, as Chloe faces her fears and finds her own voice in the process."

- Mel Malton Huntsville Forester
