Jane has now joined Mr Wisp in business, and they have founded Wisp, Vanster and Company Ltd, dealing in horses and teaching riding. Mrs Bendix and Mr Flagg have bought between them a chestnut horse, Barnone, but have turned him vicious, and Barnone has attacked Mr Flagg. As they both dislike Mr Wisp and Jane, they send the horse to him to ruin his reputation. After more shenanigans, Bendix and Flagg are eventually discredited, and Barnone is saved.
This is an infinitely better read than Let’s Go Riding: there is plenty of information there on hunting, both fox and hare, but it’s imparted much more gracefully and there is a strong enough story to carry the instruction.
