Silverhorse – Dancing with the Wind

Can a blind horse change how I see things?

Ever since having to give up her pony, 12-year-old Ava is so sad that she decides to have nothing more to do with horses or riding ever again. But then she meets the blind Lusitano mare Soraya, and to her great surprise, Soraya will trust only Ava. With the aid of Soraya’s owners, old Silvester and his granddaughter Elsie, Ava deals with her fear of commitment and allows herself to become fond of Soraya. And so the foundations for a lifelong friendship between girl and horse are laid.
