New Series: I haven't a clue if it's a series, actually.

Ripple and the Wild Horses of White Cloud Station
by Trudy Nicholson

Suzy, Alexa and Lucy live and breathe horses. But unfortunately for Suzy her allergies mean she is forbidden to have a horse on her own. When the three girls attend the round-up and action of the wild horses at White Cloud Station, Suzy falls in love with a curly-coated horse that she desperately wants to buy. However, things don't go according to plan when he gets sold to another bidder.

Summer With Horses
by Trudy Nicholson
Suzy, Lucy and Alexa are spending their summer holidays at the beach, enjoying the freedom of time alone with their horses. But a near tragedy involving Suzy's beloved horse Ripple introduces a new friend into their lives and gives Suzy the opportunity to revisit White Cloud Station.

Because every time I find new horse books with cover art posted and ready for my scrutiny, I get excited (no matter if the series looks good or not) and have to make a big announcement. New horse books!

This time they come to us from New Zealand. I honestly don't know if it's a series or just a book and its sequel. However, they sports covers I find suitable and if I must read about wild horses, at least they're wild horses in New Zealand (or Australia...or somewhere distinctly not America...I can only hope), giving the tedium of wild horse stories some slight measure of interest. Fantastic!

Both Ripple and Summer With Horses appear in Australia on March 2nd. They make their way to the American market on July 30.
