For as long as anyone at the all boys orphanage where Charlotte lives can remember, she has always worn a bit of old, leather horse rein around her wrist. As the only girl, life is hard for Charlotte, but she gets through each day by being with her best friend Hayward and the many horses at the orphanage. They dream of one day owning a horse ranch together, far, far away from the mean manager Mr. Millshark and all of the bullies at the orphanage who so dislike Charlotte for always beating them in horse races. Suddenly though, this dream seems lost with the wind when Charlotte is banned from the stables and Hayward is to be adopted. This is a moving story full of courage, friendship, woman's rights, and the love for horses. Enjoy!
