Penny and Jane now both have ponies and are keen to start showjumping, but neither parent is keen. Pa says it’s too expensive, and Mama too dangerous. Well, nobody would learn anything, would they, if it was left at that, so the two girls make their own jumps, and eventually persuade their parents to let them enter a local show, but unfortunately their parents’ worst fears are recognised when Penny has a terrible fall.
