Change can be difficult, especially for Savanna. When she gets a new trainer at a new barn, she can’t help thinking about how much she’ll miss Colts & Company. More than that…she’s a little scared. What will happen when Savanna swallows her fear and takes a chance on Happenstance Farms?

This glossy paperback has lovely heavy pages and beautiful illustrations. This story is one that all little girls will love, because the main character, Savanna, has her own horse. Her horse, Coffee, is being moved to a new barn because her old teacher is no longer working. Savanna is very nervous to go to a new barn where she doesn’t know anyone. Her mother takes her to Happenstance Farms to meet her new riding instructor and see where Coffee is now living. She’s very excited to meet two new dogs when she arrives and they are very friendly.
