It was through Emily's determination, the unconditional love she has for Seriah, and her promise to be their voice, even if it meant sacrificing her own life to save theirs. But in the end it was Seriah who actually saved hers.
While Emily lays awake while listening to her parent's constant arguing, she thinks of happier times. Not wanting to listen, Emily runs outside, stumbles to the ground and passes out.

Some horses were selected, some were not, and Emily wanted to know what was to happen to the ones not chosen. Emily's mother hesitated in telling her the truth. Then as her mother explained what would happen to the horses left behind, Emily's world fell apart as she immediately felt their pain. Emily arrived back at her home and ran as fast as she could to Seriah. Holding back the tears she wraps her arms around Seriah and vows to make a difference. Emily searches the internet for someone who woul help her save the horses.
Emily returned to the auction, watching as the brokers bought the horses one by one. Feeling worried, Emily snuck around back and freed the horses. The noise of the stampede bought attention to Emily. The brokers chased Emily with guns aimed above her towards the stallions. She stood in the front of the stallion and just then the gun goes off. Thinking quickly, Emily leaps onto the legs of the broker knocking him down. He immediately runs away but this wouldn't be the last time she would see him, for the next time could mean her life. Emily knew she had to take an immediate stand against the horse brokers, even if it meant risking her life to save the horses.
