Jean and her family have just moved out to the country. The pony getting is actually quite effortless and happens in the second chapter, when her cousins give Jean a pony they call The Toastrack. She renames him Cavalier, and the rest of the book is about Jean learning to ride Cavalier and even learning to jump.
