Set in Detroit, Michigan, the sixth book in the American Horse Tale series follows the story of a young girl who has to learn to juggle her social life and horse-riding ambitions with her responsibilities as a working student.
Even though she can only afford to take lessons once a week, Daija's increasing talents are on full display whenever she is riding at North Wind Acres--a prestigious (and expensive) equestrian center in her city. So when her trainer offers her a working student position, she quickly accepts. Now she'll be able to pay for extra weekly lessons and join the show team! But Daija soon learns how difficult it can be to balance her responsibilities with her desire to hang out with the wealthy friends she's made at the center. North Wind Acres is part of a series of books written by several authors highlighting the unique relationships between young girls and their horses.
