For every kid, there's a horse that can help. At least, that's the idea at Quartz Creek Ranch. But Hanna doubts it will be true for her. Going to Quartz Creek was her mother's idea; Hanna's too terrified of horses to even go near them.
Then Hanna meets Shy Guy, a gray gelding who's just as afraid of people as she is of horses. Of all people, Hanna is the one Shy Guy begins to trust, revealing his grace and skill in the arena. But when Shy Guy's mysterious past comes to light, everything they've worked for starts slipping away. Can Shy Guy's confidence in Hanna give her the self-confidence she needs to save him?
