The small mutt, Kody is sad because his owner, Lilly never calls him special like she does his buddy, Cheyenne, a German shepherd who is big enough to help do chores.
Cheyenne also has a horse buddy, Rio who grooms her every day.
Kody wants to be called special like Cheyenne and to have a horse friend too.
Kody becomes buddies with Raven, a rescued mustang who he begs to ride.
Lilly puts the little dog on the horse's back and is amazed when he doesn't mind.
While leading the mustang with the mutt on his back around the arena, Lilly tells Kody, "You are not only special but very brave."
Kody discovers by being himself, he is special.
