Summary from David C Cook 
In the third installment in the Horses and Friends series, thirteen-year-old Kate Ferris already has one problem. Snooty, well-to-do Melissa is boarding her horse at Kate's family stable. When Melissa suddenly turns nice, Kate is shocked ... and suspicious. The last thing she needs is more trouble. So when a hooded rider appears-and then disappears-on a stunning black horse outside her home, Kate isn't sure if Melissa is playing a trick or something more dangerous is going on. Either way, Kate and her friends will need an extra measure of faith and courage to solve this mystery.

Nayu's thoughts
I feel like saying dun dun DAH! For this story, because initially the mystery rider is a bit creepy, and before the friends unravel the mystery the situation gets dangerous. The reason behind the cloaked rider is sad, and although the friends take risks that their families don't approve of, they show great courage and compassion, turning to God to figure out what course of action to take. This story centres on Tori, who loves the cloaked rider's horse greatly. I promise you'll need tissues by the end, there are several points which are tear inducing.
