Leaving home to work in a racing stable, Sian finds that the long hours and hard work are more than she bargained for. The only compensation is her responsibility for her favourite filly, Double Jump.

It's the last straw when she has to reject amorous advances from the trainer's arrogant son, Justin, so when Double Jump is moved to another yard, Sian decides to follow her. 

She meets Madoc Owen, stable jockey at the new yard, who is battling with Cymru, a bored flat-race stallion.  Can Cymru's potential as a steeplechaser secure a new career for Madoc and can Sian and Madoc find a future together?
