A film company is making a film about the jockey Fred Archer, and they chose Hugh Hawes to play the young Fred. Hugh wants to ride Swallow in the film, as he’s always wanted to see what the pony could do with a better rider. Swallow’s owner, Rowan, still doesn’t know if she’ll ever be able to manage Swallow, and she has other worries too: will the High Hawes equestrian centre survive, and will her mother be able to afford to keep Swallow?
