Peterson's teenage heroines are having a difficult time. They're not generally in the popular crowd at school, but in horses they find sanctuary, and gain confidence. Dancer is about Hilary, who's sixteen when with Dancer, the horse she has rehabilitated, she wins a trophy jumping at the Royal Winter Fair. Her prize is an invitation to perform in England before the Queen, but all this is complicated by the unwelcome attentions of Samuel Owens, who wants Dancer for his niece, and will stop at nothing to win.
