The third book in an exciting series brings Vicki's biggest challenge yet . . . to transform a dangerous pony!

When Vicki hears about a difficult Arabian that no one wants, she will stop at nothing to save him. Years of misunderstanding have left Casper wayward and mistrustful, but Vicki senses a gentle soul beneath the pony's rough exterior. Vicki must learn the importance of patience and compromise to have any chance of winning over the high-strung gelding. Will Casper ever trust humans again? And will Vicki be able to uncover the potential she sees in the spirited Arabian? This story of self-discovery and second chances, in which Vicki, Kelly, and Amanda Wilson first help a misunderstood pony to trust again, is inspired by the Wilson Sisters' early years.
