The Saddle Club is nearing the end of their Oregon Trail ride. It's been a long ride, and it's about to get longer: Stevie Lake's competitive nature is taking over. When a boy on the trail ride boasts that he can do almost anything having to do with horses better than a mere girl, Stevie decides to take him up on the challenge. Before her friends know what's happened, Stevie is having a rodeo out West.
Has Stevie finally met her match? Can her friends stop this Wild West duel before things get out of hand? Or does this young cowboy have something else in mind when he challenges Stevie to a roping and hog-tying contest?
