Ready to Run
Ready to Run is the story of 14-year-old Corrie Ortiz, an energetic girl who dreams of becoming a jockey in the predominantly male sport of Thoroughbred horse racing, even though her mother is against it. She also has the gift her grandmother calls the "confidence of horses", the ability to understand the thoughts and feelings of horses. The ability has been passed down for generations, but only came to light for Corrie after she rescues an injured racehorse from slaughter. She befriends a racehorse named ThunderJam and together they work towards their dreams of becoming a winning racing team.
