“When Sarah’s Dad is made redundant, the whole family has to move and that means Franny – Sarah’s pony – must be sold.
Feeling lonely, and desperately missing Franny, Sarah makes friends with Sally who is equally crazy about ponies. Together, they look after old Bill Codger’s poor, neglected pony, Danny. Just when things seem to be improving everything starts to go horribly wrong. First, Sarah hears the shocking news that Franny has been badly injured in a terrible hunting accident. Then, when she is out riding Danny she discovers Cassim, Sally’s favourite pony, struggling for he life in a deep water-filled ditch. Can anything be done in time to save the ponies?”
