Stevie Lake, Carole Hanson, and Lisa Atwood are hoping to compete in a prestigious horse show. To that end, they are doing everything they can to stay on stable owner Max Regnery's good side—including doing extra chores around Pine Hollow such as exercising stable horses, like Samson. Veronica diAngelo is sure that she'll be making the trip to the horse show—just as she's sure that she'll be bringing home a blue ribbon. And of course, Veronica has no intention of lifting a finger to help anyone.
The Saddle Club would love to beat Veronica, but how? She and her horse are tough competition. Then Lisa takes Samson over a jump. He's a natural. Now the Saddle Club has to keep their "secret weapon" under wraps and teach Veronica a lesson she won't forget.
