Before Thoroughbred, Ashleigh Griffen lived at Edgardale, her family's farm in Kentucky. Nothing could be more perfect than life on the farm with her family, her favourite horses, and her best friend, Mona. Ashleigh loves helping with the horses - and dreaming of becoming a jockey some day . . .
Can any horse replace Lightning?
Giving up Lightning was the hardest thing Ashleigh Griffen has ever done. Nothing can replace her beloved mare, and nothing anyone can say or do will make Ashleigh feel better. How can Ashleigh ever fulfill her dream of becoming a jockey without a horse to ride?
Even Mona, Ashleigh's best friend, has her own horse now. Ashleigh feels left behind and lonely. Is there a horse out there for Ashleigh - one she can love as much as Lightning?
