After The Black is injured while racing in Ireland's famous Foster Stakes, Alec Ramsay and his stallion head to the Irish coast to recuperate.While there, they are charmed by the pleasant people and intrigued by tales of the kelpie, a shape-shifting creature of folkore who carries unsuspecting riders off to a watery grave.
One day, while walking on the beach, Alec meets Mora, a lonely girl who has found a stray pony. Alec recognizes her love of horses and agrees to teach her to ride. But when Mora disappears, local tongues start wagging, saying she has been taken by a kelpie and is gone forever. Alec tries to laugh it off, but he is assured that the creature is real and that, after the girl, the only thing the kelpie wants is a magnificent black stallion.
