Sandra and Adam have come to stay with Miss Vaughan, away from the dire life in London that has become theirs since their parents died. Sandra is desperate to ride, as she knew her mother did. They become involved, in a rather distant way, with The Heron, a beautiful house where the Moggs have opened a riding school. Then Onkel Anton, who used to be a groom at the Imperial Riding School in Vienna, arrives to stay with Miss Vaughan, and in the end, Sandra’s dream of riding comes true.
