Annie Garrett (Julie Benz) is a young woman who moves, with her slacker husband Ross (John Livingston) and their seven-year-old daughter Taylor (Gage Golightly), from Colorado to a ranch in northern California. After Ross fails to land a job as promised, he abandons Annie and Taylor. With nowhere to turn, and their horse to look after, Annie gets a job as a ranch hand at a stud farm owned by Mary Lou O'Brien (Marsha Mason), a stern woman who is dealing with her own past. Inspired by Mary Lou's encouragement, Annie decides to enter a dressage competition with the horse she trained, Tolo. Unfortunately, Tolo becomes blind and Annie is injured. When she recovers, she competes on one of Mary Lou's horses, California Red, but the horse is suddenly unable to compete. To enter the competition, Annie has to believe in herself and have faith in Tolo to win. Based on a true story.
