The heir of the manor must learn to ride and an ex army horse needs help.
Follyfoot was a co-production between the UK and a German production company. It was originally broadcast between 1971 and 1973. The basis of the series was that Follyfoot Farm looked after retired or hurt animals and was partially staffed by people who had been in some sort of trouble.
It had plenty to say about animal welfare and its target audience was more teenage than young girls going through their pony phase. Mike Noble produced some of his best work on the adaptation that ran in Look-in magazine.
