Tessa, her father and Nanny have returned from South Africa. Colonel Crompton gets a job with a rest home for sick and retired horses, and Tessa helps him. Unfortunately the centre is taken over by someone whose interest is in making money, not the welfare of the horses. It looks as if the centre will close, but Tessa has other ideas.
