Turbulent times in England, where Prince John temporary sits on the throne of his brother, Richard the Lionheart. This prince, so turned out soon, was rather busy to enrich himself than reign over his land in an honest way. King Richard the Lionheart joins the crusade and Prince John, who can count on the support of Norman knights, is out on money and power and imposes the highest taxes.
Angie, a poor Saxon girl, gets involved in all these events when she tries to keep Silver, her favorite horse, out of the hands of the prince. Whilst on the run, she meets a mysterious knight who grants her his horse. It is Saladin, a black stallion from a faraway, unknown country. This wonder horse teaches all his tricks to the beautiful young stallion Silver.
And this way Silver comes to be a wonder horse as well – thanks to the great Saladin who later will be the horse of no one less than Robin Hood.
Robin Hood, who lives in the forests of Sherwood with his brave men, fights against the terror of the prince and has remained faithful to the king. And he knows he can count on Angie and Silver!
The girl has brought the anger of Prince John on herself by taking Silver along with her and win a race with the mighty Saladin that should have been won by Norman knights…
