An ordinary barn sits upon the site of extraordinary events in a Pennsylvania valley. Aspiring young equestrians Karen Mulligan and Mindy York focus on riding the horses of Fox Hollow Stables, and get more than they bargain for when the spirits of former residents seek recognition and demand respect. Stable owner Ginny is a non-believer in ghosts. She pushes the girls to compete in horse shows to develop a name for her stable, while her son Brad adds to the girls woes with constant pranks. Things change when a group of local teens are introduced. Many have ancestral ties dating back centuries in the area. A mystical barrier is broken when heart throb Shane and his friend Lance introduce Karen and Mindy to a mountaintop haven, and the ancestors show both annoyance and benevolence toward the teens, but not without taking something precious from one.
Joined by other teens seeking solace from tumultuous home lives, Karen, Mindy, Shane, Lance and sisters June and Ivy become enthralled with protecting the pristine wild area and honoring the sacrifice made by someone ahead of her time. Only a betrayal of the heart and an infiltration of greed can tear the group apart. It will take a concerted effort from the teens to save a life, but will it be enough without help of the supernatural kind?
Phantom Hoof Prints explores the competitive world of horse training and complicated teenaged relationships while unraveling a local mystery.
