Parker Townsend sets off for England to train for the Olympics, taking with him two headstrong horses and some very high hopes. there he will stay with friends of the family on a beautiful country estate.
To his dismay, Parker soon discovers that the English do things differently from what he's used to. Yet he is there as a guest of the Olympic team. He must do what his new trainers tell him to, no matter how much he disagrees with them.
He must be courteous to his hosts, including their spoiled teenage granddaughter, who does her best to send Parker packing; and he must prove to everyone, including himself, that he and his horses are of Olympic calibre.
