Of Women and horses

The story of a rider on the quest for a horse. Her horse.

Disgusted to see the horses that she trained to the top levels of jumping taken away from her, Gracieuse decides to start over in the world of dressage when she meets the legendary trainer Franz Mann. Franz, now exhausted and cynical, is managing the domain of a rich landowner.

But when Gracieuse finally realizes that Manifestant is the right horse for her, she discovers that her talent is nothing when confronted with the personal interests and the high financial stakes of the game…
