Toe Jenna se ouma vir haar die naweekwerk by Amandelrivier se perdestalle reël, is Jenna eers vies, maar Kim en haar terapieperde word gaandeweg die hoogtepunt van Jenna se week. Amandelrivier se perde laat haar nie net anders dink oor perde nie, sy leer ken ook ’n ander sy van Daniel “Dash” Roux, Elzé se Gr.10-broer.
