sets him and his mother free.

The Whitlock Family:  The Whitlock family inherit money from a long lost brother. They buy ponies, and
train them for the Brockenhurst Show.  Jack deceives his father to show him that the horse Traveller’s Joy
was worth the money they paid, but it all works out well in the end.
