After moving to Cornwall, Ruby is very happy to be able to show off her riding skills at the Ocean Ranch. But then she gets a shock: her way of horse riding doesn’t go over well with the horse whisperers at all. In anger, she chooses a ranch for tough professional equestrians where she is initially celebrated as an up-and-coming star. However, when her favourite horse Fantasy is put up for sale after a tournament blunder, Ruby begins to have doubts about her choice. Under the cover of night, she saves Fantasy and now finally knows where she really belongs: at the Ocean Ranch. With the horse whisperers.
