After she aged out of the juniors at eighteen and turned professional, Zoe Tramell’s life unraveled. Once one of the top junior riders in the country, now she has no horses to show, debts to pay off, and a court-ordered community service at a therapeutic riding center, Narrow Lane. Thank goodness, Hannah helped her get another job riding for Linda Maro or she wouldn’t have any connection to the show circuit that has been her home since she showed ponies.
When Zoe starts working at Narrow Lane, she’s certain she will hate every minute of her time there. But she begins to see how horses can be important beyond the show ring.
She also finds a horse to show in an unlikely place—the barn of a local trainer, John Bradstreet. Gidget has all the talent to win on the ‘A’ Circuit and Zoe wants to take the mare all the way to Derby Finals. If she can put herself back in the winner’s circle there, she’s sure top barns will be clamoring to hire her.
But when she finds herself falling in love with John, she has to ask what’s more important—reestablishing herself as a top rider, or finally being with a good man.
