Ashleigh Miller has landed a riding scholarship to the prestigious Linley Heights School and she's determined to make the most of it. It's an incredible opportunity: at Linley she'll train with some of Australia's best riding instructors at a state-of-the-art facility and compete on the school's polocrosse team. She'll even have horsemanship as a subject in school Still, it means that once again Ashleigh will be the new girl, and she knows from experience that isn't easy. With a germophobe roommate who's determined to get the school's horse program cancelled, a history teacher who hates her from day one, and a rival rider who's jealous of Ashleigh's scholarship, Ashleigh's got her work cut out for her. She vows there's nothing she won't do to prove herself at Linley, but as her attempts to show she belongs become dangerous, she risks losing everything. For the first time, Ashleigh doesn't have being totally horse mad to fall back on. Could moving away from Shady Creek have been the worst decision of her life?
