But for Carole, it seems theres not much she can count on except for riding and the friendship of the Saddle Club. Ever since her mother died, Carole has urged her dad to go on dates. But now shes afraid that hes getting serious with a woman whom she isnt ready to think of as a stepmother. Meanwhile, Caroles getting the last thing she needs: unwanted attention from a boy. Scott will do anything - even muck out the stables - to get near her. And Stevie and Lisa arent much help. Theyre busy modelling for a riding catalogue - and finding out that modellings not all its cracked up to be!Stevie, Carole and Lisa gear up for the adventure of their lives when their friend Kate Devine invites them to her familys dude ranch. They will have a whole week of cowboy-style riding, plus the fun of making Kate a club member.But when the girls arrive, they soon realize theres more to the West than Hollywood shootouts and colourful costumes. To show a cowhand that theyre not just "dumb dudes", they pitch in with chores and help on a cattle roundup, where Stevie has a run-in with a rattlesnake. Another sour note for Stevie: her brithday is coming up, and no one seems to care. Little does she know that her Saddle Club buddies have a top-secret surprise in the works for her!ABOUT THE AUTHORBonnie 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.
