John and Jane Vanster learn to ride, taught by Mr Wisp. The story is mixed with periods of instruction: much of it still relevant, though some of it is definitely of its time. The emphasis on quietness at all times with the horse is still just as pertinent today as it was then. It’s not the most riveting of reads: really a traditional learning to ride story with a gymkhana at the end, but with far more direct instruction than normal.
