Roberta (Bobby) lives with her aunt, uncle, and cousin Ellen. They go to Bracken House School, and ride once a week. Bobby soon finds Bracken Stables, disapproved of by her school. Guy, the proprietor, buys a mare Bobby used to ride – Shelta. Then Bobby’s horrible aunt, Helen, buys Shelta but treats her terribly, and then sends her to a sale when she is lame.  At the last moment, Bobby manages to buy her.
