Synopsis (taken from
Things have always come easy for Maura - good looks, good grades and a real talent for horseback riding. So when she and her friend Jill start their summer at a horse farm, Maura decides she's going to win first prize in the annual horse show. Then Maura meets Kevin, a dark, handsome boy who rides as if he was born on a horse. Riding with Kevin is like dancing with a wonderfully graceful partner, and for the first time Maura falls in love. But Kevin wants too much from her too soon and she's scared. She needs a little breathing space. Feeling rejected, Kevin decides to show Maura up by winning the prize that she has been working towards all summer. But Maura is determined to win, even if it means losing the first boy she's ever really loved.
