Jess Cooper

Jess is new to Pine Hollow. Her family are carnie folk and follows rodeos around the country. The home schooling just wasn’t working for her and she is spending the rest of the year with her grandfather in Willow Creek and attending the local high school.

At Pine Hollow, Melanie who is missing her friend Ashley, immediately befriends her.

Jess has a few tricks of her own and is more than an equal match for Melanie and her crazy ideas and schemes.

in Series 3

Kaiya Jones (age 11) lives in Australia, but was born in Scotland and spent the first eight years of her life there. She loved being in The Saddle Club series – a first for her. Kaiya loves reading and races through books by her favourite authors and English is a favourite subject at school.

Kaiya has lots of great hobbies that include acting, and writing screenplays and stories; singing, playing the guitar and writing her own songs. She also likes cooking, inventing things and magic. About being on set, she says: “I loved filming with the animals. It’s so much fun! You never know what they’re going to do next. The people aren’t too bad either!”

Her one wish for the world: “For people to be nice to one another and stop killing each other.”

Favorite Saddle Club horse: Penny (although Jess spends more time with “Trouble.”)

“Jess is a mischievous, fun-loving girl, who loves animals. She’s a bit like me really although she’s younger, a bit more girly and gets into a lot more trouble than I do. She comes from a circus family, which makes her really interesting (although I reckon I’ve got more clowns in my family). Her life at Pine Hollow revolves around her cute little donkey, Trouble, which most of the time gets her and her friend Melanie into …… trouble.”
