Sunday night. Lara Marshall sits crosslegged on her bed, memorisingher lines for tomorrow's day of shooting the Saddle Club. She knows that her co-stars Sophie Bennet and Keenan Macwilliam, will be doing the same in their homes.
Monday morning. It's 5:30am. Lara is already up and listening for the runner's car. She checks her callsheet and smiles. Soon all the girls are on the move travelling to the location. Nathan, the second assistant director, sits at a table in the corner with scripts and schedules load out in front of him and a walie-talkie close at hand. The horses whinny in gretting as the girls approach, looking foward to the petting and stroking they know they will get.
In the stables, the director runs the girls through the scene, showing them how he wants them to move before he shouts "Action!"

The time that gypsy boy came to camp near the Stables. Rafael. Everyone was pretending to be real cool around him. But they were al straining their bridles trying to get him to notice them.
