Saige's new school year isn't starting out well. She and her best friend, Tessa, seem to be growing apart. And because of funding cuts, Saige won't have art, her favorite class, at school this year. Her grandma Mimi suggests that she do something about it, such as lead a "save the arts" parade and fund raiser on Mimi's horse Picasso.
Soon Saige is training Picasso for the parade, which helps take her mind off troubles at school. Then Mimi is injured in an accident, and Saige waits and worries, wondering what she can do. Can she ride Picasso in the parade and make her grandma proud? Can she still raise money to protect art at school? Saige is determined to try!
