January is the cruelest month, at least for the Saddle Club. The weather is miserable: cold, rainy, and muddy. No one can go riding outside, and everyone is sick and tired of being inside. The only things left to do are clean tack and ride in the indoor ring. The Saddle Club is bored--bored of riding and even of horses. So what can they do? Lisa decides to try her hand at needlepoint--can't get much further away from riding than that. Carole decides that this would be the perfect opportunity to write a great novel. And Stevie decides that a little time in the kitchen whipping up treats sounds like a great idea. Will these activities help them rediscover their love of horses? Or is the Saddle Club about to untack for good?
