Saddle Club- The Mane Event
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This movie rocks! It is a great movie for all horse lovers! It has 4 episodes all put together into one great movie! The first episode is about the barn fire and when Red quits because he was blamed. The second episode is about how Max and Debroh propose to each other. The third episode is about how Lisa wants to win first prize at a horse show but when she has to take a risk there will be consequences. The fourth episode is about when Lisa is still in a coma (after falling of her horse) and Max and Debroh getting married. Did Lisa come out of her coma ? Did Red go back to his job? You should see this movie to find out."

"Okay, my sister and I love horse movies, horse books, and of course, real horses, so please do not bad mouth me because I rate this so low. I read the Saddle Club books, and I recommend those to everyone, but this Mane Event, totally not what I expected. It seems like the girls are more into...boys than horses. I like the other movies, though I'm not really wild about them. This movie is not something I would recommend to horse crazy girls."
The Saddle Club Ride Again!

"The Saddle Club - Stevie (Sophie Bennett), Lisa (Lara Jean Marshall) and Carole (Keenan MacWilliams) - ride again in this movie edited from the TV series.
First, Jake accidentally sets the barn on fire, and Red gets blamed. The girls help prove Red's innocence. Then Max and Deborah both work up the courage to propose to each other, with some help from the girls. Now there's a wedding to plan! But when Lisa is thrown off her horse, will the wedding be cancelled?
This fun movie was edited from episodes 21, "Track Record", 22, "First Refusal", 25 & 26, "The Bridal Path" Parts 1 & 2, from season 1. (Strangely enough, all the photos on the DVD cover seem to be from season 2!) Those unfamiliar with the TV series may be confused, however. The movie starts off with no character introductions, and proceeds forward assuming the viewer knows who everyone is. The copyright is 2002, although the DVD packaging is copyyright 2005 and states "all-new movie", which this is not. It is, however, the first and only time I've seen these episodes in widescreen. It's also the first time I've heard the full version of "Hello World".
Best friends Ashley and Melanie appear together at the beginning. After this, Ashley figures into a subplot without Melanie. Melanie turns up again in the finale without Ashley, although it would make sense for Ashley to be present.
Two "Let The Buyer Beware!" warnings: 1) When you stick this DVD in your player, you will be forced to sit through four minutes of trailers. You can't skip past them, although you can fast forward through them. Those with older DVD players may have problems playing the Goodtimes logo preceding the trailers (!) and trailer 3. 2) All the special features are DVD-Rom content. If you don't have a computer with a DVD-Rom player (I don't), then you can't play the games."
