The Saddle Club Girls Gallop into the Limelight! Carole has the chance to train Samson, Pine Hollow's newest foal. Stevie has a visitor from Washington D.C., a fun-loving kid named Trudy who knows nothing about horses. And Lisa has been hired to write 'Hoof Beat' a weekly column about riding for the local paper - with pay! Everything's going well for the girls until Lisa's first column gets published. Will Lisa understand the responsibility that comes with the power of the press before it's too late? A Summer Vacation Treat: The three members of The Saddle Club - Carole, Stevie and Lisa are delighted when they get a chance to go to Moose Hill, a sleep-over riding camp in the hills of Virginia. It promises to be two wonderful weeks of riding, meeting new horse-crazy friends, and competing in a genuine horse show. But a sudden emergency at camp tests everyone's courage and results in some unexpected friendships - adding up to an end-of-summer adventure the girls will never forget!

She has also written novels and movie novelisations under her married name, B.B. Hiller. Ms Bryant began writing The Saddle Club in 1986. Although she had done some riding before that, she intensified her studies then and found herself learning right along with her characters Stevie, Carole, and Lisa.
