~Book One of the Silverstone Series~
      
      Silverstone Horse Riding Academy. It's the dream of every young rider. Over three quarters of the students who attend will go on to become professionals. Olympic show jumpers. International dressage riders. Three day eventers.
                  
                  Every year, one student is picked to receive the school's scholarship. They will receive the entire school time at the prestigious academy for free. A horse will be picked for them, and they will be equal to all those paying for the experience.
                  
                  But winning the scholarship isn't easy. The competition is intense- young riders from all over Great Britain who don't have the money to pay for the school. There's a lot of them. And most will do anything to ensure they win.
                  
                  Even when the winning rider gets through, the school year will be anything but easy. Normal classes, aside from the horse lessons, are the toughest possible. And on top of everything, being the scholarship person isn't great. 
                  
                  So when Jessica Brooke is the year's winner of the Silverstone Horse Riding Academy Scholarship, will she cope? Or will she crack under the pressure?

Not possible?! The 80% was a stretch for a young PONY competitor. 90% is laughable and not possible
@everyone who comments negatively 
                              Uhhh this is a story. Realism is a factor, but ultimately the author's ideas for the story mater more. Hating on that is just pathetic.

@InquisitiveIllusion thank you, you're truly a breath of fresh air <3
*Says she isn't wealthy* *doesn't see to her own horse that just won her an unrealistic score a wealthy spoiled brat*
I used to think 16.2 was massive but after riding a 18.3h horse I honk that 16.2h I tiny 😂😂😂😂
Also boo hoo, the breed doesn't make the horse great. The horse and rider make themselves great
