When she lived in Iowa, Sally was a beloved quarter horse. But when she arrived in New York City, they started calling her a nasty, sour nag. The girls at Bernadette’s riding school were afraid of her, and Sally started spending more and more time alone, with her head tethered to her stall. 

Troubled, twelve-year-old Kara fell in love with Sally and was determined to fix things. But her father had recently died, and her mother had no money to buy the spirited mare. Where would she end up and what would happen to Kara, who finally found a way to be happy in the wake of her father’s death?
