At just fifteen years old, Blaire Thompson thought she had it all. Living in Alberta, owning a fancy stable and competing top level dressage with her mare, Blaire was happy. She lived for competing and loved every second spent around horses. And then something changed. Her mother, unhappy with Blaire, began to put to much pressure on her. Second place was never good enough. Blaire HAD to win first. But Blaire didn't like this new way of living. She began to dread her lessons and competing. Finally, after a blow up with her mother, Blaire packed a bag, stole some money, food and ran. 

Anger on her mind, she purches a cow pony to get back at her mother, knowing she never approved of western events and takes to rhe road. Shortly after, by chance, she finds herself at Fire Forest Stables, where she takes up the job as an exercise rider. Then, a chance of a lifetime comes up. The chance to travel around North America, stopping at each rodeo and competing. Eager for adventure, she packs off with her new friends on the journey. 

Will Blaire ever remember how much fun riding used to be?
