As Black Beauty grows into a handsome stallion, he is trained into the use of a saddle and whip and sold to Squire Gordon of Birtwick Hall. Here, he makes many friends including the angry Ginger, the well-meaning Merrylegs and the elderly Sir Oliver, as well as stablehands James and John. When Squire Gordon has to move abroad to improve his wife's ill health, Black Beauty is sold again to Earlshall Park. So begins a hard and unsettled life for Black Beauty who is always at the whim of his human owners.
