On a night like any other, on the O’Hara stud farm, the mare O’Galo give birth to a little foal.
Sarah, the breeder’s daughter, is astonished by the little horse’s arrival. Her papa decides to give him to her as a gift, as she has just celebrated her seventh birthday.
He is a charming horse, with a soft, brown coat. The family has big plans for him—no doubt he’ll win all the races when he grows up.
But when he goes out for the first time, he starts galloping… backwards! The other horses on the farm make fun of him—a horse who galops backwards goes against the dignity of their species! They start calling him O’Contraire. And Papa O’Hara wonders what he’s going to do with this horse who doesn’t do anything like the others? Sell him to a butcher? One day, when Papa and Mama O’Hara are away, some thieves come to steal all the horses. And suddenly, the one everyone thought was the weakest becomes the strongest!
