Rescue Rider

James Lorimer & Co, Canada, 2012, 136 pp

13-year-old Dev doesn’t have much time for homework or a social 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.
