Stevie, Carole, and Lisa are going back to the racetrack. They can't wait to help cool off their friend's sleek Thoroughbred racehorses by walking them. They'll even earn a little money for doing something they'd do for free! What could be better? Then the girls spot an official somewhere he shouldn't be, taking money from someone he shouldn't be talking to. Worse, the official sees the girls and knows they're on to him! Now the girls are in danger. More than one kind of race is going to be run—the Saddle Club girls must race for their lives!
The Horse Wise Pony Club riders have been working hard on a precision horseback drill. They'll perform it on Founders' Day to raise money for the needy animals at a nearby shelter. But Lisa, Stevie, and Carole want to do even more. Then Lisa gets the bright idea to set up a tent and read people's fortunes before the drill. The Saddle Club's wildest dreams are fulfilled when nasty Veronica diAngelo enters the tent to learn whether there's romance in her cards. But someone else wants to know the future too—what can the girls predict for a lonely junior rider?
The founders of The Saddle Club -- Stevie Lake, Carole Hanson, and Lisa Atwood -- gear up for the adventure of their lives when their friend Kate Devine invites them to her family's dude ranch. They will have a whole week of cowboy-style riding, plus the fun of making Kate a club member. But when they arrive, the girls soon realize there's more to the West than Hollywood shootout and colorful costumes. To show a cowhand that they're not just "dumb dudes," they pitch in with chores and help on a cattle roundup, where Stevie has a run-in with a dangerous rattlesnake. Another sour note for Stevie: Her birthday 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!
TO THE SADDLE Club, there's nothing more exciting than riding horses at Pine Hollow - until they're invited to New York City to watch the American Horse Show! Max's former student, Dorothy DeSoto, will be competing, and the girls will get a backstage view of competitive riding. And in their free time, Lisa, Carole, and Stevie might just get to be the star of their own show - on the big screen!
