Melanie Atwood

Melanie is Lisa’s younger sister. She always sees herself in competition with her older sister. It drives Lisa mad but Melanie loves her and thinks the world of her. This doesn’t, however, stop her from trying to outdo or embarrass her.

Cute and lovable, Melanie is very mischievous and will urge her friend, Jess, to join her crazy schemes only to play the innocent when they’re caught out. Melanie is an inquisitive girl who gets into everything, like sand at a picnic. For example, she has a video camera always on hand to record a video diary of Pine Hollow – or better still, any incident which may embarrass the older girls. She and Jess also write a newsletter featuring any embarrassing snippet about the older girls which they think should reach a wider audience.

The miniature baby donkey “Trouble” gets them both into a lot of … trouble.

Ella-Rose Shenman ( Plays Melanie )

Ella-Rose Shenman, (age 11) lives in Australia. She is making her television debut in The Saddle Club series and loves every minute of it. Ella's favorite hobbies include singing, dancing, acting, songwriting, narrative writing, drawing and sports. What she loves most is entertaining. She also loves to read, sing on stage, act in the school drama and spend time playing the guitar and trumpet. She enjoys a lot of sports from lacrosse to soccer and horseback riding.

Ella loved being around the animals, especially "Trouble," while filming the series. She says: "I had done a little bit of riding and I love horses so it was the perfect job for me!" She is looking forward to seeing herself and the others on television.

Her one wish for the world: "That everyone was truly equal and everyone was at peace with each other."

Favorite Saddle Club horse: Dime

Melanie Atwood used to be a goody two shoes until Trouble came along which brought Melanie and Jess a little bit closer each day. Now there is a special, but very unusual friendship between the three of them. The adventures Melanie gets up to are quite above average. Melanie and I are a little bit similar as we both love to explore and be as helpful as possible.

The Saddle Club™ series stars three heroines, Stevie, Carole and Lisa, who form The Saddle Club™ at the Pine Hollow Stables. Each character has a distinctly different personality but all share an equal love of horses and a strong loyalty to each other.
