Ruth Fraser-Philpotts is the daughter of rich parents, who move to the country because it’s what their rich friends do, and has a pony, Socks, bought for her. Pat Simkins goes to the same school as Ruth. They don’t like each other, but Ruth offers to have Pat and her ponies, about to be made homeless, to stay for the holidays. They meet Monica Fletcher, and she falls for Socks and decides to buy him.
