Pine Hollow hardly has time to register the stables' handsome new manager when they are shocked by the arrival of Lisa's choice of a foster horse from the refuge. Nobody, not even Stevie and Carole, really believes that Lisa and Red will be able to rehabilitate such a badly mistreated horse as Storm. When Red too gives up and decides to return the dangerous animal to the refuge, Lisa risks her life to show her faith in Storm. Meanwhile Carole and Stevie discover that Pine Hollow is behind in its mortgage payments and unless the Saddle Club can raise the money, their favourite riding trails will be sold. When all their efforts at fundraising fail, there is only one person left that can save the trails - Veronica. But will she help?
