Abby has been training her horse for competition.  But True Blue isn’t responding to her training.  Instead of going over the jumps, he just goes right through them and no one is impressed at his performance.  But one of the judges reaches out to Abby to train one of his horses when a classmate stops riding.  Pie in the Sky is a beautiful horse – and expensive. He has a mind of his own and will take some training in order to be a show horse.  Is Abby up to the challenge?
