Ruby is horrified: there are plans to build an airport on a property right next to the Ocean Ranch! That would mean the end for the ranch because the horses wouldn’t be able to tolerate the noise. However, the owner of the property suggests a nasty deal: if Ruby participates in his horse-riding tournament and wins, the airport will not be built. Now Ruby is faced with a dilemma because tournaments are strictly taboo for horse whisperers!

About the Series

Not far from a beach in Cornwall lies a beautiful horse ranch – a paradise for girls, horses, and other animals. But those who want to ride here must first learn something very important: communicating with horses. Like real horse-whisperers!
