Sporty and her best friend, Harley, are two young horses who play basketball for Horsecitty's professional team called the Shorthorns. They're also superheroes.

After an eventful summer break, Sporty and Harley are back at basketball training, but they can't stay out of trouble for long! A series of break-ins at the Horsecitty Basketball Complex, a mysterious necklace, and a long-lost pal turning up in the most unlikely of places -- and those are just the start of their problems. What does it all mean? It means that Sporty and Harley are back in action against one of their deadliest enemies! The world may never be the same again..


Harley and Sporty are once again saving the world from evil. A teammate unknowingly carries the key to another dimension, and the two superheroes find themselves in the precarious position of protecting the key while trying to convince their teammate that it is more than just a cheap gift.

Old friends and foes make an appearance in this story as Sporty and Harley discover the origins and function of the Chargust Charm.
