This is a story about the horses in the valley at Honeyvale: Bear the black Shetland, Colonel the bay hunter, and a chestnut filly called Katharina. Told from the point of view of the horses, we hear their conversations with each other. Mrs Grantoun and her daughter Ann have come to stay while the owners, Major and Mrs Farringdon, are away. Then the Major decides to sell Colonel and Katharina. Mrs Grantoun buys Katharina, hoping to make money out of her as a successful racehorse. Colonel is sold, but is then bought back by a rather unexpected buyer, and Katharina of course wins.
