Quality Concealed


Set against a backdrop of horse jumping competitions, Quality Concealed is a feel-good story of
devotion, determination, and of making dreams come true. Addressing popularity, peer pressure,
and values, it tells of 16-year-old Heather’s training of her part-Percheron gelding under the
direction of her mysterious and sometimes frightening neighbor. Mr. Quinn. She meets
boyfriend snatcher, Sheila, and her seasoned jumper, Pagan, in the show ring and learns an
important lesson about winning. The joys and frustrations of love flavor the story as Heather
seeks to retrieve a handsome classmate’s affection as well as guide her widowed mother’s
romantic endeavors.
