Natasha Silver is a female rider who is introduced in Take the Reins. She is the protagonist of all the books from Take the Reins to Unfriendly Competition. She was last seen on the YENT alongside Callie Harper, Heather Fox, and Brit Chan.
Sasha is first introduced as a new student at Canterwood Crest Academy, enrolling mainly for the academy's acclaimed riding program. Through training and seasonal competition, she rises through the ranks of the school's different leveled riding classes, due to her hard work despite the many effects her ever-changing social life have on her life as a competitor. She is currently on the Youth Equestrian National Team as of her last appearance.
She is extremely passionate about horses and her priorities revolve around the care of horses, her beloved friendships, and performing well but fairly in horse riding competitions. She is known to be a kind individual who cares about doing right by her friends and avoiding rule-breaking but has had issues with lying to keep her friends happy in the past, which realistically did the opposite, despite her original intentions. Overall, she has good intentions and is rarely selfish.
Most of her troubles in the series revolve around a trivial love triangle and her rivalry with the Trio.
Some of her interests include riding, planning events, makeup (her favorite brand that is commonly referenced in the series is Lip Smacker, a popular youth-centered lipstick brand in real life, and it is speculated that her favorite holiday is either Halloween or Christmas.
Sasha has green eyes, tan skin, and golden brown hair that goes just below her shoulders. She is portrayed by a model on the various book covers of the series, as seen in the character info box above.
On a general matter regarding Sasha's relationships with others, Sasha has had a collection of friends that fluctuates throughout the series. Her best friends are Callie, Paige and Brit as of her last appearance, but there have been issues shared between said friends and Sasha during different books (notably Callie, who even hated her for a time from Little White Lies to Unfriendly Competition).
Although Sasha previously had a strong rivalry with Heather Fox, Julia Myer, and Alison Robb, they eventually settle their differences and become fair friends by the end of the first set of books revolving around Sasha's story arc.
Because of Julia's suspicion towards Sasha as a potential rival for a second time (despite a slowly-worked-toward friendship), the Trio member starts Sasha and Co, a blog where Julia anonymously attacks Sasha and her inner circle of friends through harassment and cyber-bullying tactics. Once discovered as the culprit, Julia loses her friends and is expelled from the academy.
