After a serious riding accident, Wendy, formerly an enthusiastic and successful rider, never got back on a horse. But once arriving to her grandmother’s farm, she crosses ways with Dixie, a wounded horse which just escaped from the butcher. Dixie seems to be quite fond of Wendy and follows her whenever she goes. The two loners are building a friendship which has the potential to forever change not only Wendy’s life but also could save grandma’s ranch from being sold. But for how long will Wendy be able to hide her new friend from the adults?
