Chestnut Hill: New Class

Chestnut Hill #1: The New Class

Welcome to Chestnut Hill, a prestigious boarding school with a rich tradition of academics, horses, and rivalry. This year, five girls from different backgrounds will challenge the Chestnut Hill stereotype. There's witty, spunky Dylan; secretive Malory; western tomboy Lani; Honey, the soft-spoken Brit; and polished New Yorker Razina. None is prepared for the social or riding rigors, and they all doubt they will fit in -- certainly not if queen bee Lynsey and her clique have any say. But if this unlikely fivesome can band together, they may prove themselves the true stars of Chestnut Hill.

The tryouts for the equestrian riding team are over, and Malory earned her spot as the second-ranked rider for Chestnut Hill. Still, she doubts whether she belongs at the elite school despite receiving a top scholarship. Then the pony she's training gets hurt, and Malory wants to ride Tybalt in the next show. But Tybalt is wary and defensive. Her instinct tells her they share a special bond, but she doesn't know how to reach him. Malory has always trusted her gut when it comes to horses, and she's willing to bet her future at Chestnut Hill that Tybalt has what it takes to win.

Chestnut Hill #5: The Scheme Team

Dylan admits that it isn't always easy being the niece of the new Director of Riding, Ali Carmichael - especially not when the riding teams blame Ms. Carmichael for their poor performance at a big event. Then Dylan hears rumors that the former, respected Director of Riding wants her old job back. Dylan realizes there are students who want her aunt out, and she hopes she and her friends will be able to make a stand. But with all the whispers and secrets, she has no idea who is on her side - and who is not.

Chestnut Hill #6: All or Nothing

Malory has a natural gift for riding, so it's no surprise that she's invited to try out for an exclusive summer riding team. But there are always hurdles. Malory needs to find a horse to ride, compete against her classmates for a spot, and deal with the fact that Caleb - the boy she's liked all year - is trying out as well. It doesn't help that things with Caleb have been tricky as of late, and that joining the team would mean leaving her father and Tybalt for the summer. Malory has always been methodical and reasonable, but even she struggles to make the decision that is right.
