This is the story of the Pluckroses of Abbey Farm, and their horse, who in fact is not a horse at all
but a pony. The Pluckrose family go to a circus at Olympia, and bring home a rather unpredictable
performing pony. They call him Hoppy, as when his mind is on the job he can jump anything.
Unfortunately, they cannot discover what exactly it is that makes him jump, so sometimes he is
appalling, sometimes brilliant, and sometimes he won’t jump at all.
