Elaine has her event horse, The Legend, but she still can’t shake the Fanes off. They are trying everything they can think of to raise money for Elaine to compete, and then Nick Foster, whipper-in , suggests Elaine apply for a scholarship. The process towards this, via the grey bolter The Comet, Lala Thornapple, and of course the Fanes, is far from simple.
