Jared is pleased to be able to call Jacqui, Geordie and Hannah his friends. As his horse learning journey continues, a malnourished grey gelding becomes a part of his learning experience. Jared realises that it’s not only people that can hurt other people – they can hurt horses too.

Jared’s life is suddenly filled with his new friends, including Peter who used to bully him. Jared is pleased to be able to introduce Peter to the people at church who encouraged him to befriend the young boy. Whilst there, he learns about a Greek word that describes the joy Christians can find in God.

The new word somehow seems fitting for the new horse and Jared questions how he can joyfully work to restore the trust that the grey gelding seems to have lost.
