Heather urges her Magic Attic Club friends to join the school's Academic bowl. The competition gets fierce when the winners are offered the chance to visit the nation's capital, Washington D.C.! But when Heather is chosen on a different team from her friends, she's not able to perform at her best during the practice competition. Her team begins to feel that Heather is losing on purpose, and her Magic Attic Club friends suspect Heather is holding back, too. They suggest she visit the attic.
On Heather's attic adventure, Adagio is an old horse no one wants except Heather, who falls in love with his gentle spirit. But when Adagio balks on the stadium jumping course, Heather is ready to quit-until she discovers that his hidden talent is dressage. Is it too late for them to prepare for the exhibition?
