Charles has suffered from polio, which has badly affected one of his legs. Riding is supposed to help him, so he learns to ride. At first, under the auspices of his cousins, this is disastrous, but then he finds a riding school run on more enlightened principles, and matters start to improve. He learns to jump, and then buys the grey mare, Secret. Charles is determined to show jump her successfully.
