Lisa's horrid, bratty cousin is staying with the Atwoods. The nine-year-old nightmare child acts charming around adults, but to other kids, she's a menace. Now she's trying to get the Saddle Club into trouble and it's working. No one believes that little Amelia broke an expensive hobbyhorse the Atwoods own. Or that she spooked old Patch into causing a stampede that almost got Pine Hollow's owner crushed. Instead, fingers are being pointed at the Saddle Club. Can Lisa, Stevie, and Carole clear their good names?
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.
