At the Last Moment


This time it all revolves around a riding competition, because Elena, Tim and Niklas are taking part in the preliminary selection tournament for the European Junior Championships. However, something fishy appears to be going on. The horse that is leading the rankings is injected by a masked person and disqualified, and the other riders who move up the rankings (including Niklas) suddenly get vomiting with diarrhoea and can no longer participate in the tournament. For Tim, who now takes first place, the victory has a sour aftertaste. Elena, together with Tim, try to get to the bottom of the matter. And, indeed, it emerges that Tim’s father, after being released from prison, did dubious deals with a rich Russian to rescue Sonnenhof and solve his money worries. This Russian now wants to ensure that the horse from Sonnenhof wins the tournament, at any price.

However, Elena also has other worries: her boyfriend Farid, who has graduated from school, receives an offer from a major football club that he can’t refuse, but he must move to another town. And Elena must ask herself whether their relationship will withstand this distance?
