Canterwood Crest

by Kristi

I just read the first book in the new Canterwood Crest series from Jessica Burkhart. The title is Take the Reins.

The book is so good and it's like The Saddle Club meets The Clique. But Sasha, the main character, is much nicer.

Take the Reins:

Sasha leaves home to attend Canterwood Crest and she tries to make the advanced riding team. But she's up against some tough competition.

I loved that all of the horse stuff was correct and that there was a good mix of boys, friendship and horses.

I really liked this book and can't wait for the second one!

Just wish they would keep going with Sasha Callie and the normal and not go into the other girls like Lauren towers and that.

Video Game
by: Katie

They should make a video game or an online game where you can be a student and enroll at Canterwood Crest Academy and even get an acception letter. I would love that! I literally just finished book #15 and am going onto book #16. This series is my life! Thank you so much Jessica Burkhart! I love you!

I also wish that there was a real Canterwood Crest Academy! I would so apply and would most likely get in! I even ride! But, sadly, I don't own my own horse. But I'm going to, soon!

This series is hands down the greatest horse series ever. Once you read it, you can't stop! Not sure if people read it for the horses or for the drama though.

CANTERWOOD CREST IS THE BEST HORSE SERIES IN THE WHOLE ENTIRE WORLD!!!! Jessica Burkhart is such an amazing writer. She makes Sasha and Lauren and everyone else seem so real. Plus the plot in the books is very relateable. Jessica depend my love of horse books and lip gloss and made me want to start writing and get published. I love Canterwood and would definitely recommend it to girls who love a mix of horses, lip gloss, drama, and boys! <3 <3 <3

by: Anonymous

so awesome i can't believe that mom bought me those books, they're so entertaining for ex: when in winter when you can't ride and the book gives so many tips on riding etc. lolololololololololololollolol love itttttttttt!

Nov 03, 2012

Okay, so these are, like, the best books ever!! I'm more of a Harry Potter, Percy Jackson girl, but one day I was in the bookstore and I didn't know what to read so I began to read Take the Reins.

I was immediately hooked. I mean, so much drama, horses, friendship, boys, boarding school!!!! I LOVE IT!!! And I didn't really like Eric!! I was SO happy when Sasha and Jacob got back together; I mean they were MTB (Meant to Be)

I really like Lauren, but I think Jess made her too perfect. Sash had imperfections and she was easier to relate to cuz she made so many mistakes. But Laur is gorgeous, smart, popular, an amazing rider, and all the guys like her...not a lot of people can relate to that!! Anyways, I still haven't got Comeback and Masquerade and I NEED IT bcuz they don't have the books where I live (used to live in massachusetts, but moved out of the country) but right now my parents r in LA and they're gonna get them!!

first book
by: CCA4ever

WOW! I can't believe people are on the first book. I reordered the most recent book, COMEBACK, and finished it in three hours because it was amazing. I do wish though that the author would make the books more longer (ex: City Secrets thickness) because the books are so easy to read through and then we have to wait four months for the next book to release. Canterwood Crest is the BEST series ever!!!

by: 33beth

I love this book, it is so awesome. I finished triple fault and I read the sneak peek of best enemies and I can't wait to find out what Juilia and Alison do when they get kicked off the advanced team. I think the Belles and Jasmine did it because Callie heard them talking about something like that! Anyway this is one of the best books ever and I am the NUMBER 1 FAN! I can't stop reading them!

THIS IS THE BEST BOOK SERIES ON THE PLANET!!!!!!!! I CAN'T EVEN PUT IT INTO WORDS!!!!!!!! I got my friend to read it and she says she HATES reading and she's not even a horsey person and now she's bugging me to loan her the next book. i tell you these books are insane! the first book is a little bit slow but when you read the second book and it introduces the she-devil (a.k.a Jasmine King!) it really picks up!!!!!! SUCH A GOOD BOOK SERIES!

P.S: after book 12 you will read the super special "Chosen" which introduces a new cast of characters! (awaiting book 14's release!)


P.P.S: the books are cheap too!

Uhhh . . .?
by: Anonymous

Canterwood Crest is a VERY amusing book series. "Sasha Silver" is supposed to be lower down on the wealthy scale than most people at her uber-posh school, but for some reason she still shops frequently at Express and Burberry, using emergency credit cards? For a horse book they spend way to much talking about clothes. However, I find the entire series extremely addictive to read . . .

AWESOME! :) :) :) LOL
by: Kaylee

I would SO want 2 attend CCA 2! It would b the best school in the country! I like every character and I have the WHOLE series. My BFF hates horses and me reading horse books all the time but if she read them, I would SO show her that I was right and she was wrong! Lauren and Sasha ROCK! They should rate these books 13 2 17 that's how advanced they r! I don't really think 9 2 13 is a suitable age group. I'm 16 and I read them! I have SO much more 2 say but then I'd b sitting here typing 4 3 days! LOL! TTYL peeps!

I thought they only went to 13!!!! Yay on the 16!!!! They're so good I got my friend who doesn?t even like horses (I?m ashamed to say) to read them....she read the series in one week :)But me and my friend both agree that it?s like The Clique, but with a little saddle club in it.

Lauren Towers? She's Cool Too
by: Anonymous

I heart the book series. Every time another book comes out I'm totally on it. I wish I could attend CCA too. I love all the characters (even the snooty ones-maybe). I can't wait to see if Sasha shows her face a lot in the books Lauren Towers stars in. Lauren isn't that bad either though. Hey, if Sasha thinks she's cool, she's cool with me too.

I am a total cca fan!! I love Sasha, Eric, Jacob, Callie, Heather, Troy, Julia, Ben, Taylor, Lauren and everybody else!! I have all the books now and I am waiting for the next one!!

I am going to REALLY miss Sasha and Co. but I also can't wait to see Lauren in another book! I've been addicted to this series sense my friend got the 3rd book and I read it. Then she bought the whole collection and I was addicted. Also another good series is Heartland Horses. It also has a TV show and I watch it every Thursday. I can't wait for the next book in Canterwood, Initiation.

really bad
by: Anonymous

I totally agree with anonymous. Everyone,or at least Sasha and Co., are major brats. They do take everything for granted and they never stop to think about the good things they have. If one thing bad happens its going to ruin their life forever. They always do something wrong, or whats against my moral judgement, and blame everyone else for it.

(other than Heather, and Alison, and Brit, and EEEERRRRIIIIIICCCCCCCCCC, and Jacob, and everyone else) and briar creek sounds soooooo fun to go to! when Julia got expelled, i was REALLY happy and really sad at the same time. but im past that bc i am wit LAUREN'S GROUP NOW!!! (Lauren's group is Brielle and Ana, and oh yeah, Taylor, and Becca, and mom, and dad, and Kim, and..... never mind. i talk alot) and yes. i did get my books back. and i read everyone over AGAIN. and again and again and now... i know all of the lines by heart. its really sort of cool. cuz, i literally know all of the lines BY HEART! omg!!!!!! kk, im on team EEEEEERRRRRRIIIIIICCCCCC all the way. anyone else? i am on everyones team, but i am def. on team Erics the most. and, anonymous, i would agree too. the book is sometimes about just drama and if one thing happens it is like it will ruin their lives. but i still LOVE the books!!! <3 kk, i really can go on forever about these books (and in a good way, too :P), so i am gonna have to say goodbye. i will be back, though. you know to right back, and to keep posted on about the books. and u will do the same... i hope. :O :) :P. kk bye

by: Hunter

I got the first 2 books for Christmas and I read them both in two days! xD I can't wait to get my hands on more. It's really interesting.

There's a lot of drama. I think the books are mostly about boys and horses :p. The author describes the riding scenes really well and you start to feel like you're in Sasha's shoes. (:

There should definitely be a TV show!

Canterwood Crest Series
by: Rebecca

Sasha Silver is new to Canterwood Crest, a prestigious boarding school in New England. There, she tries to juggle school academics, mean girls, riding clinics, and more, all with so much drama. I find that this series is quite good . . . when you start, you can't really stop! The only thing that I don't really get, is how much drama there is. Other than that, I highly recommend it.

Chasing Blue
by: Lara

Now that Sasha Silver and her horse Charm, have proven that they are worthy competitors for the Canterwood Crest equestrian team, Sasha's psyched to get back to school... until self-proclaimed it-girl, queen bee, and owner of the I'm-so-way-better-than-you-are attitude, Heather Fox, is assigned as Sasha's riding partner. Not good.

And when Heather starts spending a little too much QT with Sasha's almost-boyfriend, Jacob, their partnership is put to the ultimate test.

Nov 24, 2010
by: Anonymous

i don't like this book. there is hardly anything on horses and it's all perfect and uptight. nobody seems to relise how lucky they are to have their own horse and everyone goes around taking everything good for granted. and when something bad happens they act like it's the worst thing and think they have a bad life. okay, so she covers up for someone who kisses her so her horseloving boyfriend breaks up with her, one of her best friends hates her and she goes after the guy who kissed her (jacob) and he hates horses. then she ditches her bff for the meanest girl in the school. seriously? (that's not the first one it's later on in the series)

by: Horsecrazykenzie

I absolutly LOVED book 1! i havn't read any of the others yet, but i am going to! I wish canterwood crest was real! i would want to go! the website is cool to.
i amnot trying to promote the website, but it is cool and there are tests that tell you who you are most like! the only thing i dont like about the website is that they dont have real horse pics in the "stable" only drawings of horses. i think they should have what ever horses are on the cover for the horses in the "stable"! i hope every horse crazy girl reads and loves these books as much as i do!

Sep 04, 2009

I absolutely adore these books!! They r totally awesome! I cannot believe all the drama! I absolutely love it! I would sooo recommend these books even to horse haters! And Jessica Burkhart is an AMAZING author! I don't know what else to say, I just love these books. I just finished the third one this morning and I am SOOOO totally going to get the fourth one. I think Jessica Burkhart should write another series or at least more CANTERWOOD CREST!!!! I would give these book TWO thumbs way up!
