Meet Tally, a working student who loves riding in the lesson program at Quince Oaks. But Tally’s barn family is about to get a lot bigger when a new A-circuit trainer arrives at the farm with clients like Mac, a girl Tally’s age who is moving up a division on her own pony hunter. While the riders face different challenges, they come to learn how much they have in common as they chase their riding dreams together.
