When Natalie saves enough money to buy Apocalypse, she's certain she has found her heart horse: a horse that's so special it's as if they're a part of your heart. She hopes he's the horse to help her win a barrel-racing title too. But Eleven arrives at the ranch the same day as Apocalypse. Eleven suffered abuse and needs proper care. Natalie finds herself caring for Eleven when she should be barrel racing with Apocalypse. Will Natalie become a barrel-racing champion? Which horse will truly capture her heart? At Second Chance Ranch, the Ramirez family cares and works to find homes for all kinds of animals on their 200-acre ranch in Texas. Sisters Natalie (12), Abby (10), and twins Emily and Grace (9) all do their part to help out and give each animal the second chance it deserves.
