‘Tessa Compton loved horses and longed to own one worth showing. But she had only her humble pony, Dusty. Her father – Colonel Compton – could not afford to buy another, but he showed Tessa how to groom, train and ride Dusty so that he could be entered for local shows ‘without disgracing the family’. During Dusty’s training Tessa had opportunities of riding some really fine ponies, and one day her most cherished dream came true.’
