Trail Ride is a continuation of the Westover Series written by Mary T. Leonard. This installation follows Samantha Henry and her best friend Imperial Bueno. The twelve-year-old spends most of her time with Imperial, otherwise known as Impy, competing in horse shows. When David Henry, Samanthas father, suggests a trail ride on the Henry property with a group of friends and family, Sam can barely contain her excitement at the thought of spending a summer Sunday afternoon with her prized companion. Suddenly, a playful race between Samantha and her neighbor leads to an accident, and Impy is hurt. Samantha, at the young age of twelve, must learn the valuable lesson of love and loss.
