Noah Schuster is a student of Andrea's who has had
a horseback riding accident and is now left sightless. Faced
with the possibility that his blindness may be permanent, Noah
is discouraged, thinking he'll never ride again, but Andrea assures
him that with some hard work, anything is possible.
The following day Andrea and Rick arrive at the
ranch to observe Noah riding his horse, but a thunderous noise
shoots across the sky sending the horse racing and Noah hanging
on unable to stop. Rick races after them on horseback and Andrea
becomes Isis, rising above the sky to calm the horse to a standstill.
With Noah now scared to get back on any
horse, Andrea decides that the boy needs a special kind
of horse: Sunny, a horse specially-trained to assist the blind!
Miss Thomas helps Noah get acquainted with Sonny,
but when she encourages Noah to ride him, the boy runs away to
the barn, throwing himself onto a haystack. Picking himself up,
Noah fumbles and unwittingly knocks over a water cooler. Unfortunately,
the sun's rays pass through the broken glass, starting a slow-brewing
Noah stumbles back toward the corral and discovers
he left the gate open, enabling Sunny to wander out. Deducing
the horse has gone to the pond Noah goes to look for the animal
and falls into the water calling out for Sunny's help. The horse
brings him to safety, but Noah smells the smoke from the fire.
With newfound courage, he rides Sonny back to the ranch so he
can go to sound the alarm and notify everyone about the fire.
Andrea's bird Tut finds his mistress and alerts
her to the danger. Becoming Isis, she and heads for the ranch,
setting the horses free and sending down rain to put out the
fire. A crisis is averted and Noah has learned a valuable lesson:
meet your fears head-on, or they will beat you.
