Mary and Anna were inseperable, even sharing Anna’s horse, September, until Anna’s father sent her away to school at Kilmingdean School, an expensive, snobbish establishment that specialised in turning out show jumping champions. It changed everything between Mary and Anna. Anna promised to write, but her letters soon stopped. Mary was left behind, employed now by Anna’s father to look after September: to look after, but on no account to ride him. Mr Dewar did that, and Mary was forced to watch as Mr Dewar crippled September through over work, and she could do nothing. When it finally seemed as if Mary would loose both Anna and September, she embarked upon a daring scheme to rescue September and win back the respect and friendship of Anna and her father.
