Samson gets saddled. The Saddle Club girls have been training Samson since he was born. But now the frisky young horse is starting to act up. The girls have to find a way to make Samson behave. Then Stevie Lake has to go to New Jersey for her cousin's Sweet Sixteen party. Yuck! Who wants to think about boys and bands when there's a horse to be trained? Samson needs all the girls in The Saddle Club if he's ever going to become a pleasure horse. Doesn't he? Don't judge a book by its cover. Emily has cerebral palsy, but she and her specially trained horse get around just fine. The Saddle Club girls make friends with Emily and even take her on her first trail ride. Unfortunately, Emily's wonderful outing at Pine Hollow Stables is marred by someone who doesn't think, disabled people belong there. Veronica di Angelo is the most unbearable snob ever! The Saddle Club and Emily cook up a plan to show Veronica what real riding class is.
