Jess now has her own pony, Polly, a grey Arab mare. However, it is not all plain sailing, as Polly goes down with tetanus and hovers between life and death while Jess nurses her. Even when she’s recovered, Jess is out riding Polly and tangles with a runaway
trailer. She is rescued by her friend, Beckie, who is confined to a wheelchair.
