Watching the excitement of the famous Shetland Pony Grand National at the London International Horse Show at Christmas gives Harlow and her mum, Chelsea, an idea: what if they were to buy a Shetland pony for Harlow to race in the coming season? But the only Shetland pony they can find for sale is a cream dun gelding called Cloudy. If Harlow is to join in with the Shetland Pony Grand National fun this summer, Cloudy is her only chance.
But there’s one big problem with the little pony: Cloudy hasn’t ever raced – in fact, he hasn’t been ridden much and doesn’t want to do anything Harlow asks him to do! As Harlow and her mum struggle to cope with the wayward Cloudy, Harlow’s dreams of competing in Shetland Pony Grand National races start to fade. After all, how can they possibly train Cloudy when they don’t know anything about racing themselves?
With only five weeks to go before the trials, what can Harlow and Chelsea do to turn things around? Is there anyone who can help Cloudy overcome his unwillingness to cooperate? And even if they do find someone, will it be too late for Harlow to begin her Shetland Pony Grand National racing adventure and follow her dreams?
