Madeline is sixteen with nothing to do in the school
holidays. The rural Irish town is quiet and shops are not
hiring part-time staff. To keep her out of trouble she is
encouraged to join a Riding Club and learn to compete. Her
borrowed horse Moonrock has plenty of experience.
The same can't be said for Alabama, the young chestnut mare
purchased by Karen's moneyed parents. Karen is expected to
succeed, even though other club members - such as Niall, a
farmer boy - resent the fact that her father bought up
farmland for building. Karen's only ally is Jen who works
at the livery yard, training young horses.
Can the young adults put aside their differences and learn
to be a team - when it really matters?(
