Show synopsis The saga of Green Mountain continues as the Lawson family, three generations of horse trainers, continue their success in the modern horse show industry. When a mysterious illness begins to strike one of their horses after another, the Lawsons are faced with challenges and losses that will change the future of Green Mountain Ranch. Read this excerpt from the book: 'The sport of reining appeals to horsemen because theoretically, each rider is competing only with himself. His goal is to complete every maneuver smoothly with finesse. To run a pattern without flaws is not enough to win a show as highly competitive as the National Reining Horse Association Derby. Luck has a lot to do with it; luck of the draw, luck that the ground is good, luck that the horse will perform correctly. Trey Lawson wasn't feeling particularly 'lucky," but he did feel confident as he entered the holding area to the cavernous arena. The high energy of the crowd was palpable. He swept a lock of hair back and pulled his hat down firmly, then pointed New Gold Bar toward the open gate. Normally Trey would wait until his horse settled before starting his circles, but they were both ready so he jiggled the reins slightly and laid his right heel just behind the cinch. The chocolate Palomino struck off with his left lead, loping off quietly into a slow, fancy small circle. When he came around the center, he found another gear as Trey chased him into two, fast, breath-taking circles with a perfect flying lead change to the right in the middle of the arena."
