Ride follows Katherine "Kit" Bridges, a North American girl who moves to England when her widowed father, Rudy, accepts a job at the illustrious Covington Academy: an elite equestrian focused boarding school. What may seem like a dream come true on the surface becomes far more complicated when Kit realizes more than just her nationality and fear of riding separate her from her peers at Covington. An instant connection to TK, the most stubborn and difficult Horse at the academy, opens a door to a whole new world of adventures for Kit with friends, frenemies, crushes, hidden secrets and the chance to uncover her true identity. With TK, Kit will be able to handle any challenge she faces!
In the premiere episode, Kit’s adventures begin when she arrives at Covington Academy excited for her first day at the school. However, things take a turn for the worse when Kit realizes she’ll be expected to conquer her biggest fear – riding a horse. Meanwhile, Elaine will do whatever it takes to win in the first competition of the year and both Will and Nav want to ask Kit to the Gala, but who will Kit go with?
