It is time for Caroline to show the small hunter – ‘a nice horse, but not naughty. Not deliberately so.’ An added problem is that Caroline’s cousins think that the best way to show the small hunter is sidesaddle, and so that’s what Caroline has to learn, under the tuition of Mr Marmalade, who ‘teaches all the best people’.
