When Lisa, Carole, and Stevie head west to the Bar None Ranch, they have a great time planning a Halloween party with their friend Kate and John, a Native American boy who works on the ranch. The Saddle Club is also thrilled when they get the chance to see a herd of wild horses, including the beautiful gray stallion that Kate wants to adopt. Then John tells the girls a mysterious Indian legend about a gray stallion and warn Kate to keep her distance from the one in the herd. Is john just playing a holloween trick, or is Kate about to ride into danger? The Saddle Club is determined to find out!
Bonnie Bryant is the author of nearly a hundred books about horses, including the Saddle Club series, Saddle Club Super Editions, and the Pony Tails series. She began writing the Saddle Club books in 1986. She had done some riding before that, but she intensified her studies and found herself learning right along with her characters, although she claims that Stevie, Carole, and Lisa are all much better riders than she is.
