Will Stevie Lake be allowed to go to riding camp?
Stevie Lake has been grounded. No hanging out with the other members of The Saddle Club. Even worse, Stevie's not allowed to ride! It's going to take all her wackiness, and a little help in the scheming department from Carole Hanson and Lisa Atwood, to talk her parents into letting her go to riding camp. Can Stevie clean up her act in time? If she doesn't, summer is going to be a complete bust!

Even though groveling to Stevie’s parents hadn’t helped, Lisa still felt confident. “Besides,” she continued, “I didn’t want Stevie to feel desperate.
