Caroline is on a studwork course, but misses riding, and Simon, Sarah and Becky ‘persuade’ her to leave. The stud has been hit by contagious equine metritis: most of the mares are now barren, and the stud is finished. So, they will become a riding centre, and Caroline will be the secretary. Against all the odds, the centre struggles on, and Caroline finds she likes teaching. This leads her to a dilemma – whether to make a break from her cousins at last, or stay on and run the centre.
