Seventeen-year-old Amanda Wilson is in her final year of high school, and has reached a crossroads. Her secret ambition is to make horses her future, but she isn’t sure she has what it takes.

As Amanda and Viking learn what they are capable of together and ride their way up the leaderboard towards the Pony of the Year competition, Amanda begins to realise that the one real obstacle to achieving all her dreams is her ability to believe in herself.
But will she master her mental game in time for the test of her life?
