'She hung on grimly and for the briefest of instants thought she would remain in the saddle, but her flagging grip was no match for Humphrey's explosive power and she felt herself ejected upwards. A huge crack reverberated in her skull and then there was nothing.'
Humphrey is a handsome, well-bred lightweight hunter, owned by Major B and cared for by Jade, his groom. H, as he is affectionately known, with his bright bay face with a crooked white stripe, has a good life. However, after a reckless ride by the Major's thoughtless nephew, H is sadly injured and has to be sold.
And so begins a series of events and unwitting adventures across two countries with a variety of characters. Confronting happiness, theft, heroics, accidents and downright cruelty, will Humphrey's resilience and patient temperament help him survive these trials and tribulations?
This exciting story demonstrates the harmonious energy between man and horse and how Humphrey, with his generous, trustful nature, is faced with the very best and very worst of human behaviour.
