Some equestrians are up to more than horseplay in this third book of the Nancy Drew Diaries, a fresh approach to a classic series.
At the prestigious—and competitive—River Heights Horse Show, the prizes, which range from money to possible placement on the Olympic Team, are so highly coveted that anyone from the riders to the owners will do anything to win…even drug the horses! Who’s up to no good? Nancy, Bess and George are on the case!

The top riders from all over the country are here, and one of them, Payton Evans, is a close friend of Ned’s family. She’s been training for years, and Ned said she might even make the Olympic team. But just when Payton was supposed to compete in this show, everything went horribly wrong: Her horse, Midnight, tested positive for drugs! What kind of person would ever give drugs to a horse? And why?
