A group of children in Polnesten have decided that they are pretty hopeless riders, and together they forma Riding Club to improve themselves. Then lots of newcomers move into the district, first among them being Christa, who thinks a lot of herself and her riding. As well as lots more new club members, Colonel Maxten and his wife also move in, and the Colonel offers to instruct the riding club. Under his tutelage, they all improve, particularly Pam on her wild Minderley horse Starfleet. Christa at last mellows, and the club holds several successful events: hunter trials and a gymkhana and a one day event.
