STEVIE, CAROLE, AND Lisa are off to Texas to visit their friend Kate Devine at her family’s ranch—the Bar None. It’s the perfect time to visit, since the annual rodeo has come to town! The girls decide they don’t want to just watch the wranglers compete; they’re going to enter the competition too.
And they need every minute to practice if they’re going to go up against real cowboys. But when they realize someone's trying to sabotage the Bar None competitors, the girls’ real work begins. And it’s just the kind of work the Saddle Club is made for.
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.
