Rescue Rider

James Lorimer & Co, Canada, 2012, 136 pp


13 year old Dev doesn’t have much time for homework or  asocial life because she’s showing Mirror
Glider, or working at the stables or at her dad’s restaurant. When her horse has an accident and has
to retire, Dev is suddenly faced with a new problem: Zim, a promising, but very disturbed, rescue
horse. Dev has to convince this horse to become the jumper she knows he can be. But first, she
needs to learn more about the horse's history, and things get more complicated than she bargained
for.
