Stormcloud has all the bad habits of an ex-rodeo pony rolled into one. He nips and bites, bucks and rears, kicks out and rides through the bit. Worse still, he tunes in to a nervous rider's worst fears. Keira's uncle, Kevin, has rescued Stormy from the sale barn, paying rock bottom price for a worn out, world weary horse that no one wants. He brings him to Black Pearl Ranch, saying, "If you can make something of him and sell him on to a decent owner, you can keep the profit." Keira jumps at the challenge - taking Stormy back to basics, re-schooling him and treating him right. Will Stormy respond? Or have years of mistreatment soured him for good?
