When two giant draft horses take up residence at Dark Creek Stables, the trouble starts. Fences collapse, Mrs. Bailey can't keep up with the feed bills, and Jessa's pony, Rebel, finds himself out in the cold during the worst blizzard of the century. To make things worse, Jessa and her best friend Cheryl can't seem to get along and a surprise visitor nearly ruins Jessa's Christmas vacation. Will Dark Creek ever be the same again?
