Bronwen Smith trains hard with Olympus, her Hanoveriean-cross gelding, preparing for the most gruelling of equestrian events: three-day eventing, including dressage, stadium- and cross-country jumping.

A member of the Ontario Young Riders' Team, she aims to excel at the North American Young Riders' Championships upcoming in Illinois. She trains so hard, in fact, that she hasn't time to make friends, and recently her secret demon--bulimia--has returned to plague her. A chance encounter with a poet and his wife, however, forces Bronwen to reassess her priorities. Soon she's moving towards the balance needed to truly succeed, in the show ring and in life.

Shadow Ride shows how hard it can be for a young woman to set high standards for herself and at the same time accept who she is.
