Bobby is now working with Guy, but a plane crashes on the stables, Guy is injured and Bobby and groom Heath have to run the stables. Bobby is still wrestling with the problems Shelta was left with after her stint with Aunt Helen. They also have to deal with hostility from Bracken House School, whose pupils’ riding lessons they badly need.
