Christina has moved to the country with her parents, her three ponies, and numerous staff. The house they have moved to was Charlie’s old house, and she and her friends are determined to loathe Christina. As Christina doesn’t know much about looking after her ponies, and her newly acquired wolfhound isn’t well trained, she has an uphill battle before she can start to make friends.
