Nicky Wyman loved horses, but came from a family with no money for anything but essentials. To keep riding she mucked out stables, cleaned tack, and exercised other people's horses. Then she found herself battling to save the life of a little mare - Moon Jumper. Always against time, and sometimes even outside the law, they worked to prepare Nicky and Moon Jumper to do the impossible - to win the most prestigious one day event.
