Story Summary

Wild Rose is a horse farm in Dearborn, Missouri. People living and working here call it "The Barn." Veteran horse trainers Robbin Wilson and Carl Wilson bought the land 22 years ago and established it as a training ground for horsemen. Robbin has been winning awards on horseback for more than three decades. Robbin's son, Dez Mallonee, who gave up his dream of being a lawyer to return to "The Barn" has become a horse trainer. Carl retired four years ago. Robbin handed day-to-day operations to Dez and focused only on horse training and teaching lessons.
