“Widow Mrs. Sinclair gets a job at Diana Watson’s riding stables, and her daughter Pippa goes too. Diana isa hard mistress, but a friendly neighbour named Miss Winter helps the Sinclairs in their difficulties. When Diana gets married the stables are sold and the Sinclairs lose their main source of income. But Miss Winter once more comes to the rescue, and Mrs. Sinclair takes a large house where she looks after children whose parents have gone abroad. Of course the children ride, and they all have exciting adventures, including the breaking in by Pippa of a frisky horse bought by Miss Winter. Mrs. Sinclair has a fall, which necessitates a drastic operation, but in the end everything ends happily.”
