4 out of 5 stars

Hachiken enters his first horse riding competition with the school equestrian club. He is very nervous, but he tries to encourage his teammates. He is focused and determined to do well, but there are various distractions surrounding the competition. A rider from another school calls him out as her greatest rival with hilarious results. In the second half of this volume, Hachiken is helping to prepare for the big school festival and has a long list of responsibilities.

I loved this volume! I got really excited about the riding competition and was interested to see the scores of the different characters who competed. There are some really funny scenes, and interesting developments for Hachiken in his personal relationships with friends and family.

Hachiken deals with the aftermath of the school festival, and goes on a first date with a girl he likes. He is forced to help with the birth of two baby calves while the rest of the school gets to watch the school’s big baseball game. He misses all the fun, but gains the confidence to keep searching for his dreams.

This manga just keeps getting more and more hilarious! I love that things go wrong for the characters, and they are disappointed and have to struggle through tough situations. It shows their strong personalities and the way they have to encourage each other through hard times.
