She and her partner investigate the murder of a teengage girl and a horse. Hightower explains the dirty workings of horse dressage and keeping a stable. As the investigation unfolds, it becomes questionable whether the intended victim was the girl or the horse. Is the horse plot correlated to the homicide or are they separate issues?
