Located in the quaint town of Swedesboro, NJ, a group of equestrian vaulters searched for years to find the horse of their dreams. Just when finding the perfect horse seemed hopeless, the team was granted a Christmas miracle. Janyck arrived and stole everyone’s hearts. He not only performed his new job perfectly, but Janyck found a way to help those who needed him the most. Then, through a horrible twist of fate, on the coldest day of the year, Janyck plunged through the surface of an ice-covered lake. Despite attempts from dozens of rescue workers, his 2,000 pound ice-covered body could not be pulled from the icy grip of the lake. Meanwhile, a second disaster loomed on the horizon. Having finally found the perfect horse to fuel their dreams of winning a national championship, the vaulters and everyone who loved the gentle giant, watched helplessly as only a miracle could save Janyck from the clutches of impending death.
