From the Back Cover
"I couldn''t let anyone know what I''d done. I''d worked so hard to gain their trust, I couldn''t risk losing it now.
Winnie Willis has confidence to spare-on horseback that is. If only she could have the same self-assurance at school. When Winnie gets a dreaded school assignment, her whole world is affected. Worse, an accident on horseback shatters the one area of her life where everything was going fine. Now she''ll have to find the courage outside herself to face her classmates and the horse she let down.

In this volume, Winnie is to gentle a jumper. Only problem is, Winnie is thrown while jumping -- and starts telling lies about what happened to her so that her dad won't make her quit gentling horses. But what about Bold Beauty? She needs to be gentled enough so she can make the jumps at a competition. Without Winnie having confidence, will she be able to make Bold Beauty have the confidence needed to make that highest jump? Not only that, but she's being paid a nice sum of money to gentle this horse, and she'll only get paid if she accomplishes that. If she can't get this done, she won't have money to keep Nickers since she lost her job mucking stalls!
I really am enjoying this series. So many of the characters are so well developed. The only thing I didn't like about this book is the abortion debate. I realize this is an important issue, but I also don't like it thrown into books where it could as easily be left out, especially when it feels "tacked on" as it did in this book. Also, for younger or more naive children, this might be a little more than their parents would care for them to know on this topic.
Other than that, this is a highly enjoyable series and this book doesn't disappoint.
Book 3 is just super - with some new characters and challenging topics
