When her parents move to a remote island in the Salish Sea ten-year-old Maeve Lawson must overcome her fear of horses to protect an unwanted pony and compete in the island’s historic ‘Belle Vue’ race. 


Ten-year-old Maeve arrives with her parents Teddy and Anna to their grandpa’s (Tim) home on a beautiful island in the Pacific Northwest. Tim has recently lost his partner and Maeve’s Grandmother, Joyce - resulting in Maeve and her parents moving to island to care for him; a quirky, lovable boat builder with a passion for kites. On the property is a pony named Sailor that Joyce was rehabilitating from an injury before she passed. Slowly, with Grandpa’s Tim’s help, Maeve overcomes her fears of horses and builds a strong bond with the pony.


Grandpa Tim shows Maeve around the island, the beautiful old American lighthouse and Hill Fort called ‘Belle Vue’. He explains the history of the island and takes Maeve to the beach to watch the local boys racing horses. Tim explains that they are training for the island’s annual horse race, a local tradition dating back to British rule. Maeve finds herself developing a strong friendship with a local boy named Aito, who helps her in the quest to save enough money to buy and care for the horse and save him from an unpleasant fate. With the hard work and help from her family, friend Aito, and Aito’s father, Maeve is able to save Sailor from its owner’s plans to have ship her off as a broad-mare. With Maeve’s perseverance Sailor overcomes her injuries and they qualify for the final of the 'Belle Vue Race.’ The final race is close — Maeve rides Sailor without a saddle to help with the weight and as the other horses are spooked by the howling winds reverberating around the beach caves, Sailor and Maeve race to victory over the local boys — finally triumphing over her early fears.
