Flying Horseman

Morgan Knight was all set to go into the Royal Air Force, having been mad about planes for years, but then, during his last year at school, he caught polio, and was left with a slight limp. This is enough to destroy his hopes of being a pilot, and so his father arranges for him to go as a working pupil to the Croxleys’ Fruit Farm.

Morgan Knight was all set to go into the Royal Air Force, having been mad about planes for years, but then, during his last year at school, he caught polio, and was left with a slight limp. This is enough to destroy his hopes of being a pilot, and so his father arranges for him to go as a working pupil to the Croxleys’ Fruit Farm. There is an airfield near to the farm, which is an attraction for Morgan, unlike the fact that Sara Crowley is a well known junior show jumper. He ends up learningto ride, and this does have unexpected side effects.
